Well, you can't keep a builder down for long! As some of you may know, I built and documented here a Sonex which I owned from 2008-2015. I guess I drove my wife nuts not having a project so she told me to build a new airplane!

Why a Zenith Cruzer? While the Sonex was fun, I really prefer a high-wing. The Cruzer also has a bit more room in the shoulders, especially with the bubble doors. It's amazing how the kit manufacturers have really matured their products over the past several years. Final-sized holes, CNC punched holes, match-hole drilled, etc. It's really more of an assembly than a fabrication.
