Light Sport and Ultralight Flying magazine, February 2007 issue On the cover of Light Sport and Ultralight Flying magazine, February 2007 issue. "Off-Runway Air Recreational Vehicle: Zenith's CH 701 Kit is Sport-Pilot Ready." Cover story by Dan Johnson, pages 26 - 35: 

"While no CH 701 will be envied for its striking good looks, the STOL design more than makes up for its workhorse appearance with toughness and outstanding short-field performance.  And a 20-year-plus history in the field speaks volumes to the model's market and aerodynamic success."

Oregon back country Ken Szewc's STOL CH 701 of Oregon:

"My airplane now has 200 hours, and has been to back country strips in the Idaho Selway bitterroot wilderness, Oregon Eagle caps, Hells Canyon, etc. With the bubble doors, I don't think you can get an airplane with better visibility."

"I am overseas in Australia on a job for my employer Boeing. I will be putting the CH701 on amphibious floats upon my return. The CH701 is a popular airplane over here too!!  I am fascinated by the STOL capabilities of the CH701."

"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."
