STOL CH 750 Rick Carpenter (Williamsburg, Ohio) with his Zenith STOL CH 750:
"I am a happy person today. The FAA gave me the green light to fly !!! I would like to thank Zenith for putting this kit together so will. I built this aircraft in less than one year, and I could not have done this without Zenith making it so easy to do. I think Zenith has done more than 49% but I am not complaining!!"

Mark Swalley's Zenith STOL CH 701, as featured in the December 16, 2011, issue of General Aviation News magazine:
"Swalley got interested in the Zenith design after seeing it during a visit to AirVenture in 2003. “My wife calls it my $25,000 airplane ride because it led to the purchase of the kit,” he says. Swalley notes that he started building the Zenith in 2003 “before I had my pilot’s li-cense — like the Wright brothers. I had no flying experience while I was building.”  Swalley soon joined the Experimental Aircraft Association, learning the full value of membership as he got help from several members who were willing to share ideas, jigs, and their expertise.
"The [plans-built] airplane took three and a half years to build (from scratch). As of this July, Swalley had approximately 230 hours on the airframe. He adds he especially enjoys the STOL (Short Take Off and Landing) aspects of the design. “The shortest landing I ever made was when I put it on the numbers and never left them,” he grinned. “ I cruise at about 90 to 95 miles an hour.”

Mike Turner's Zenith STOL CH 701:
"I have 85 hours on my 701 and have enjoyed flying it very much. It's so easy to fly and quite a joy. I have a 8-foot high deer fence enclosure so I use the plane mostly for pleasure and checking my deer herd inside and outside the fence. Its so easy to fly over the green patches and count the deer in each green patch on daily basics. I have a landing strip inside... the enclosure and only couple of hundred yards from lodge which makes it convenient for hunters to fly in for scheduled hunts. Flying the plane over the green patches saves me lots of time sitting in stands checking herds when i can fly over and see the same thing and enjoy a great flight at same time. Thanks Zenith for a great plane."

Patricia with the STOL CH 701 on the cover of "99 News," the official magazine of the International Organization of Women Pilots (Oct. Nov. Dec. 2011 issue)

"This amazing woman is setting a new level for firsts, including the first woman to obtain Ghana’s National Pilots License and the first woman and first black African to obtain the coveted Rotax Aircraft Engines certification after training and assessment in Austria with Rotax Aircraft Engines at the Regional Innovation Centre. The first female engineer to undertake the course, she was among 33 participants from 20 nations and five continents. She is now teaching, engineering, flying, doing photo-video missions, training, conversion flights and check rides. What she loves about flying? “Everything. Especially the fresh air that takes away all of your worries and the ability to view the world in a different way.”

"Since it made it up to 100-degrees today (!) we decided to fly our STOL CH 750 demo plane, equipped with the six-cylinder Jabiru J3300, to see how it would cool and perform on such a hot day. Verdict: It performed flawlessly and cooled us down nicely."

"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."
