July 16, 2014 - If you’ve always wanted to try your hand at homebuilding, you won’t want to miss the One Week Wonder project at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2014, where volunteers will transform a standard Zenith CH 750 Cruzer kit into a flyable aircraft in seven days! This activity will take place at the EAA Square at the intersection of Celebration Way and Knapp Street, right in the center of the convention.
While the goal of the One Week Wonder is to build a flyable aircraft in seven days, we also want to demonstrate that homebuilding is something anyone can do. To help drive that message home, all AirVenture visitors are invited to come to the project site and pull a rivet–literally have a hand in helping build the airplane.
The first 5,000 people who pull a rivet will receive a One Week Wonder commemorative pin, a digital photo as a keepsake of their experience, and the opportunity to sign their name in “The World’s Largest Builders Log.”
Those who visit the One Week Wonder exhibit tent will also be able to cast their votes to select the winning paint scheme for the completed Zenith CH 750 Cruzer.
This entire effort would not be possible without generous support from the following companies:
Aircraft Spruce & Specialty
Skytek Aircraft Services
Ray Allen Company
