FIBERGLASS & PLASTIC PARTS from Zenith Aircraft
Since his earliest designs, Chris Heintz has used composite materials on his aluminum aircraft wherever compound curves (parts with double-curvature) are found. For this reason, engine cowls, wing tips, wheel-fairings, etc. are traditionally made of fiberglass on most Zenith Aircraft designs. Today, we also regularly use vacuum-formed plastics.
Because Zenith Aircraft typically offers a variety of engine choices for its many aircraft designs, we carry a number of different engine-cowlings for most models. In some cases (i.e. the CH 650 & CH 750) two models will have the same-size (& shape) firewall; those models may then share the same engine-cowling possibilities.
Below is a listing of all currently available fiberglass and plastic components for all Zenith Aircraft kit-plane models.
1) All fiberglass parts listed below are made using a Polyester Resin.
2) We do not stock all items (some are made on demand); delivery times may vary. Contact Zenith Aircraft for details.
3) To order any item(s) shown below, please complete and return a standard Order Form.
Note: Where items, Part Numbers (P/N) and/or prices are missing, please Contact Zenith Aircraft for the information.
ENGINE COWLINGS & Accessories
Two notes about our engine cowlings:
1) Most prices below are for just the cowlings. They do not include an oil door, hinge, fasteners or hardware of any kind. To receive all this, please request the “Cowl Assembly Kit” (P/N ECAK) as well as the cowl set when you order.
2) Engine cowlings are generally light but large and relatively fragile and must be adequately protected for transport. Unless picked-up at the factory, they will need to be crated for shipping. Crating (full plywood box) is $225.00 per cowl; shipping costs are in addition.
