First Flight, by Jim Smith

May 18, 2009:  Congratulations to STOL CH 750 builder Jim Smith of Claremore, Oklahoma, upon his successful maiden flight today!
He reported:  "Took it on it's first flight at 6:45 a.m. this morning. Wow! One of life's great thrills. It just flew beautifully. I started my takeoff roll and gently pulled the stick back to get the nose in the air. I had planned to note when the wheels left the ground so I would know rotate speed but it lifted off immediately. Climb out was great. This aircraft is very easy to fly. At 4,000 feet I let go of the stick and it flew wing level... "I couldn't be more pleased with the performance or handling... You guys who are building a 750 are going to be thrilled with your airplanes!!!!!!"

STOL CH 701

Elmer Webster's STOL CH 701, as featured in the July 2009 issue of Kitplanes magazine (Completions, page 70):

"Take two winters of evenings and weekends, add the engineering genius of Chris Heintz, and stir in a few dollars.  The result is N701ET, a really tough little sport flier!  The Zenith CH 701 kit was a snap to build and the easiest plane to fly I've ever seen.  Built and trimmed exactly to the plans, the first flight was essentially hands-off with no surprises.  It has a Rotax 912S powerplant, long range tanks and many little extras.  I also added the tail feathers VGs, and after 55 hours, 50- to 60-foot takeoffs are routine.  Wheel skis and floats are next on the agenda!  An ideal fishing machine, it can be seen here, resting in its natural habitat on a riverbank in south central Alaska."

STOL CH 750 LS: Factory-built Light Sport Aircraft

"With the new CH-750, Zenith Aircraft seems poised to attain dominance in the light STOL and bush plane markets. These planes easily compete with established and almost folkloric names like the Piper Super Cub and for some good reasons: The Zeniths are very reasonably priced and their performance operating in short fields surpass the numbers offered by their competitors."

Bill Rewey's four-seat STOL CH 801 (Verona, Wisconsin):

"Total cost was about $40,000 using a used (but overhauled) Lycoming O-320 engine. N171WR has an IFR panel, wing leveler, elevator and aileron trip, and a 60 gallon fuel capacity . Thanks for a great kit and great design. Factory assistance was outstanding"

"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."
