Many were pleased to see a particular new yellow and red STOL CH 701 light sport utility plane. What made this 701 unique was the installed powerplant: a Jabiru 2200 direct-drive four-cylinder four-stroke horizontally opposed air cooled engine producing up to 85 hp. With an installed weight of just 132 lbs. (60 kg.), this is one of the lightest four stroke aircraft engines in existence.  This wasn't just a "one-of-a-kind" custom engine installation: The engine installation was designed and tested by US Jabiru of Shelbyville, TN. In fact, the yellow and red STOL CH 701 was flown to the Zenith Open Hangar Day by Pete Krotje, owner and director of Jabiru USA. Zenith staff and Open Hangar day participants were duly impressed with the performance of the Jabiru engine in the STOL CH 701, which is being offered as a lower cost alternative to the Rotax 912 series engines.

"We finished the STOL CH 701 in 2005, and enjoyed the building so much that we built a Zodiac 601."

Harold Crosby's STOL CH 701, powered by the 100-hp Rotax 912S, in Pocahontus, Arkansas.

"The building of my STOL CH 701 was very easy.  I started work on it last August 2007 and twelve months later it was done (if it wasn't for me being sick so much of the time I think I could have finished it in five or six months).  It's a great plane to fly and does everything you say it will do. Thanks."

Raptor-Tango, a Hawaiian STOL CH 701:

"These are the photos AFTER the building.  We also have photos during a builder's assist process we could never have envisioned, because the Duggers and Erik (from Quality Sport Planes in Cloverdale California) were beyond any expectations.  In addition, Michael Heintz provided invaluable guidance and oversight that made the entire process smooth and enjoyable.  The 701 has the first Jabiru engine on the island, which makes for a lot of enthusiasm... She's like the VW of General Aviation to us. so cute, safe and best of all - FUN!"

"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."
