Kitplanes magazine, November 2013 Zenith CH 750 CRUZER on the cover of the November 2013 issue of KITPLANES magazine, cover story: "A Zenith for the Asphalt Jungle"  Pages 6 - 15, story by editor Paul Dye:

"It is dependable and honest, flies at 120 mph, operates easily and smoothly off of paved and prepared runways, and will teach pilots good flying habits. There is plenty of cockpit space and the baggage area is cavernous."

Float flying fun! NEW Video Clip:
French documentary excerpt of a STOL CH 701 on Zenair floats (with folding wings) in the southwest Pacific islands. Guy Kane and his Zenith STOL floatplane participated in the "Lapérouse Expedition" to research the 18th century explorer Lapérouse's mysterious shipwreck in the south Pacific. The aircraft provides awesome versatility and utility and is the perfect tool for air reconnaissance!

Pilot magazine: November 2012

PILOT magazine, November 2012 issue, cover story: "Zenair CH 750 - A kitplane with remarkable performance."  Pages 50 - 56, cover story and flight test review by Dave Unwin:

"The takeoff was impressively brief, indeed we were flying also as soon as we started to roll.  ..visibility is every phase of flight really is excellent.
"I decided to hold the aircraft in a stall, and with the stick on the back stop it simply sank straight ahead in a very stable condition with a vertical speed of less than 500 fpm.  You could ride it down to the ground like this, and although you might burst the tires you would definitely walk away.  This is a very safe airplane."

"In conclusion, I was hugely impressed by the STOL CH 750. In many ways an excellent example of "function over form," its STOL performance is remarkable. I flew it on a flat-calm day and was amazed at how little runway I used, and this was the first time I'd ever flown one. I would imagine that with a few hours on type, and say 20 kts on the nose, you could land (and equally importantly - take off again) practically anywhere."

"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."
