STOL-Adventures.com has released its first full-length DVD featuring the STOL CH 701.  Titled "Canyon Surfing," this video shows off the aircraft at its best in off-airport, back-country environments: Landing and taking off from rough river beds, short grass fields and curved private roads. Flown by experienced STOL pilots Christopher Desmond and Michael Heintz, this fast-paced adventure includes steep turns, tight "canyon turn-arounds" and remarkably steep approaches and climb-outs, providing an excellent demonstration of the STOL's amazing capabilities.  Order your copy today from www.stol-adventures.com, or click here to view a short preview of the video on YouTube.

Attila Kazi's plans-built STOL CH 701 from Adelaide, Australia.

"Here is my finished STOL CH 701 - first flight was on January 19, 2008.  The building took six years, from plans.  Thanks to Chris Heintz for the nice design and easy reading plans (blueprints). The engine is the 80-hp Rotax 912, and the plane has a folding wing option."

Jeff Beachy's beautifully built and finished STOL CH 701 in Plain City, Ohio:

 

"I am happy to report that my CH701 is complete and flying. I received an FAA airworthiness certificate on December 17, 2007 with first flight following on Christmas Day. I built N701N from a Zenith complete airframe kit.  Engine is a Rotax 912ULS.  This was my first airplane project and I thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. Thanks to Zenith staff for technical help. Kudos to designer Chris for such a fine design. Now, if the wind will finally die down after 3 weeks of constant crosswinds, I'll get back to flying my new airplane!"

"The Zenith literature package is easily the most complete package I have received from any light aviation company, and I’ve seen many other good ones among the hundreds I have studied. Lots and lots of information is presented with some lovely graphics. The literature alone is impressive, but the volume of information will keep you reading for hours. You can get a good idea of what you're buying without ever leaving your chair."
