Zenith construction occurs 6 miles south of campus at Willard Airport in Savoy, IL.  Zipcars are used to carpool students to the hangar approximately three times a week for four hour build sessions for the Zenith. The build sessions occur three or four times a week and typically occur from 6-9 on weekdays and 1-5 on weekends. The day of the build session varies depending on the availability of the builders and foremen.

There is currently not a formal location to work on the Composites plane, but we are working on getting another hangar to store larger parts and temperature-sensitive materials.
