The CH750 STOL is a world leader in bushplane performance. There are certainly other fabric or carbon fiber aircraft in the market that can beat a 750 STOL in take off or landing performance, but we are talking about a matter of a few feet. In order to beat at CH750 STOL off the ground you will need to compromise on a few things. Value for money – Add about $80 000 to buy a hard-core carbon bush plane. Durability – nothing beats all-metal for durability and resale value. If you are planning on leaving your aircraft in the sun and weather while you enjoy a week in the bush – you will be glad your wings are not made of fabric. Build time and simplicity – Most kits are completed in about a year. Standard Inclusions – Compared to some fabric tail-draggers out there the CH750 STOL is so feature-packed that you really can’t fairly compare them. Dual hydraulic disk brakes, electric elevator trim, electric flaperons, bubble doors, faired struts, the list goes on – all standard (and we are still cheaper!).
They are very easy to get in and out of, the fly beautifully and there’s LOADS of room for even two of the biggest blokes. The STOL can be registered as either an Ultralight (600kg certified MTOW) or VH- (650KG Design MTOW) and in either case has the lifting capacity to get you there and back with full fuel.
