Here is a picture of some of our students from Nigeria posing with President of Zenith Aircraft Company, Mr. Sebastien Heintz after completion of the Rudder section at the factory in Mexico city , Missouri.
A group of International aviation Students from International College of Aeronautics (ICA) West Africa arrived in USA on May 9th, 2018 to Zenith Aircraft, in the state of Missouri, to construct a flyable CH 750 airplane. This is an historic project to build the first civilian airplane by Nigerians.
So far, we have secured the following parts:
- CH 750 Basic Airframe Kit
- Viking Aircraft Engine Model 110
We still need your financial and/or in-kind help to:
. Cover Aircraft Engine Instruments costs
. Cover Flight Instruments cost
- Cover Aircraft Painting
. Fund the shipping costs of airframe to ICA for final
construction and airworthiness certification

Aviation is the fastest growing industry in Africa today.
Commercial Aviation operations are those operated by Airlines and Charter Operators and accounts for 20% to 30% of global aviation activities.
General Aviation, smaller aircraft that can fly into more places, accounts for 70% to 80% of world’s aviation activities. This is one reason why ICA is building the CH 750 aircraft!
In the USA , there are over 5,000 airports however airlines use less than 500 airports for their operations. The remaining airports are utilized by General aviation Aircraft. BUDGET CH 750 Airplane Project Description Price ($)
