INTRODUCING THE ZENITH CH750 STOL
Based on the popular STOL CH 701 design from Chris Heintz that was first introduced more than 25 years ago, the Zenith CH 750 STOL design incorporates all of the 701’s amazing short-field capabilities, while maximizing cabin size and load carrying capability allowed under the FAA’s Sport Pilot / Light Sport Aircraft category.
Like the original, the Zenith CH 750 STOL aircraft was developed as an “off-airport” short take-off and landing kit aircraft to fulfill the demanding requirements of both sport pilots and first-time builders. Designer Chris Heintz has combined the features and advantages of a “real” aeroplane with the short-field capabilities of “ultralight” aircraft. The aircraft features fixed leading-edge slats for high lift, full-span flaperons (both ailerons and flaps), an all-flying rudder, and durable all-metal construction. The modern STOL CH 750 design is available as an easy-to-build kit which revolutionizes ease and simplicity of construction, drawing upon Zenith’s decades of experience in the kit industry.
The Zenith CH750 STOL boasts amazing short take-off and landing (STOL) performance, surprisingly competitive cruise speed, a huge cabin with side-by-side seating and easy access, new raised skylight and increased cabin height, and spectacular “wrap-around” visibility. With outstanding controls including full length flaperons and all flying rudder, the simplicity of the tricycle gear and so many engine choices, the CH750 STOL makes an ideal off-airport or bush aeroplane.
The CH750 STOL is the perfect aircraft for those people looking for the complete ownership experience – easy ordering, huge combination of engine and instrument options, simple and proven construction techniques and many years of exhilarating performance.
“Is everything OK?” – A quote from Air Traffic Control after seeing Cooper plant a landing and stop on the threshold markings. The controller thought he may have crashed. Nope – 30m landing rolls are pretty normal.
