STOL CH 701 Drawings & Manuals
STOL CH 701 Drawings and Manuals (sample only)

Supplied with the complete STOL CH 701 kit, the drawings are not just assembly instructions (as with most kits), but are detailed 11" x 17" CAD blueprints of the entire airframe assembly and individual parts, and come with an assembly manual. 

Photo Assembly Guides The STOL CH 701 Drawings & Manuals package includes a CD-ROM with high-resolution
Photo Assembly Guides for the step-by-step assembly of the STOL CH 701 kit.

Supplied with a serial number, you can actually build your own aircraft from "scratch" following the Drawings and Manuals.  Scratch-builders can purchase any individual parts or components directly from Zenith Aircraft Company.  If purchased separately, the cost of the drawings and manuals is deductible off the cost of the full kit.

"Zenith is one of the few kit makers that still offers a plans-only option; the company supplies complete kits...
  but it will also sell sub-kits, individual parts, or just the plans and builder's manual."
- KITPLANES magazine: "The Scratch-Building Alternative" July 2008

Following are some selected sample CAD drawings from the STOL CH 701 drawings. These are sample drawings only and are for informational and educational purposes only.
