The EAA staff build of a Zenith 750 STOL kit is underway! This past Saturday, 15 staffers spent the day working on three different rudders as Sebastian and Roger from Zenith watched over our progress. They brought us three rudder kits to build as a part of the opening day kickoff of our project, and I'm happy to report that all three rudders were completed in a matter of hours!
I have almost 40 people interested in helping build from the EAA staff, and a goal of Memorial Day weekend 2013 as a completion date. I'll use this thread as a "build log" as we work our way through an ELSA version of the 750.
Special thanks to Sebastian and Zenith Aircraft for the generous donation of the 750 to EAA for us to build, and eventually put in to the EAA Employee flying club!

While we only need one, we built three!
