Build a Zenith kit airplane at Rob Sherman Airplanes at Schaumburg Airport.

      Rob Sherman Airplanes provides you with a place to build your Zenith kit airplane, the tools to build your plane and the knowledge and expertise on what to do and how to do it, all at a surprisingly low cost.  Airframe kits from Zenith Aircraft Company start at less than $11,000.  Use of the builder facilities, tools and advice is just $20 per hour or $125 per day.  For an additional $30 per hour, Rob will help build your airplane to move the project along so you can fly sooner.  This could also save you money, since you and Rob can both work on the plane simultaneously for the same $20 per hour hangar use fee.  Total time to build a complete airplane is approximately 300 to 1,000 hours.

      Rob Sherman Airplanes has teamed up with a network of professionals to help you with such things as painting your airplane, graphics, certifying your plane's airworthiness and getting you pilot training, so you won't have to figure out how to obtain all of these services on your own.

      Fly a low-wing airplane like Rob has or a high-wing airplane if that's what you prefer.

      Just think:  No more airline fees!  No more TSA hassles!  Fly when you want!

      Imagine:  You, a pilot with your own airplane.  Wouldn't that be great!
