FOLDING WING OPTION
for the STOL CH 701
The folding wings option (FWO) allows the STOL CH 701s wings
to be folded back alongside the rear fuselage, providing added convenience for
storing or towing the aircraft. To fold the wings, the four wing bolts must first be
removed, and then the wing is turned upward 90º and folded back alongside the fuselage,
pivoting on the folding wing universal hinge attachment. The folding wing
option does not change the wings attachment points, and thus does not weaken
structural attachment points.
Approx. 88" wide (gear), 103" tall (tail), 245" long
The folding wing option is available
as a kit or may be built from the construction drawings. This option is retrofittable on
completed aircraft, or may be incorporated as the STOL CH 701 is constructed.
fabric covered or composite aircraft, the STOL CH 701s durable all-metal airframe is
suitable for continuous outdoor storage, diminishing the need of folding the wings for
hangaring or protected storage.
