Build a Zenith kit airplane at Rob Sherman Airplanes at Dupage County Airport.

      Rob Sherman Airplanes helps you build your own airplane by providing you with a place to build your Zenith kit airplane, the tools to build it and the knowledge and expertise on what to do, all at a surprisingly low cost.  Airframe kits from Zenith Aircraft Company start at less than $11,000.  Use of 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 will save you money, since you and Rob can both work on the plane simultaneously for the same $20 per hour hangar and tools use fee.  Total time to build a Zenith kit airplane varies, but generally ranges from 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 (above) 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!  You CAN do it.
