"The Zenith literature package is easily the most complete package I have received from any light aviation company, and I’ve seen many other good ones among the hundreds I have studied. Lots and lots of information is presented with some lovely graphics. The literature alone is impressive, but the volume of information will keep you reading for hours. You can get a good idea of what you're buying without ever leaving your chair."

EAA Experimenter magazine 


Note: Many of these images show customer-built aircraft, some of which have been modified without the designer's specific approval.  Alternate engine installations will affect performance and specifications of the aircraft.
