The new STOL CH 750 offers
roomy two-place side-by-side seating in an ergonomically
designed cabin. The cabin interior is designed to provide
maximum comfort for two typical large adults. Oversized swing-up
doors allow easy "slide-in" access to the cabin from both sides.
Each seat position is adjustable for a perfect fit. There
are three standard available seat positions, at two inch
increments. Additionally, the rudder pedal position can be
set by the builder of the kit for optimum positioning. The
standard kit includes the seat frame but no cushioning (padding)
or upholstery is included.
With the 3rd edition STOL CH 750
Drawings (released April 16, 2012), the cabin has been increased in size by raising the cabin height by nearly three inches (or 70 mm.)
The top front of the cabin (the skylight) has been raised. The cabin frame's top diagonal cross member has been replaced by two beefy smaller diagonal "hand-holds" by the front of the cabin, and the formed
tinted plexiglass top window adds to the lifting surfaces of the aircraft, to provide better STOL performance and capability.:

remarkably spacious cabin - an astonishing 127 cm wide."

full domed bubble doors / windows provide both added width to
the cabin and amazing visibility to both pilot and passenger.
The doors are hinged at the top, and equipped with locking
door handles. Each door is domed 4 inches (10 cm.) to
provide maximum additional cabin space. With the domed
bubble doors cabin width is an amazing 50 inches! (1.27 m.).
The full bubble door provides outstanding side and downward
The cabin is fitted with a large instrument panel and dual
controls accessible from both the left and right seats. The
standard center-mounted control column (stick) can easily be
operated from either side, and does not limit visibility of the
instrument panel. Throttle
controls are mounted on both sides of the panel for easy access.
A dual control
stick option kit is also available.
The large instrument panel
measures about 32 inches (800 mm.) across by nearly 11 inches
(275 mm.) tall in the center to allow for custom avionics
installations, and is ideally suited for modern glass panel
large baggage area is located directly behind the seats for easy
access (shown above with the seat backs removed).
The dual rudder pedals also steer the nose-wheel, and are
equipped with standard hydraulic toe-brakes on the pilot's side.

Designed for superior forward visibility
VISIBILITY: Unlike other high-wing designs, the STOL CH 701's
wings are positioned above the cabin and fuselage to provide
pilot and passengers with superior visibility. The "Above-Cab"
wings taper at the wing root to maximize upward visibility while
also providing superior side visibility, as the wings are
located above the pilot's head.

Designed for superior visibility
As all seasoned bush pilots will confirm, off-airport operations
require an aircraft with superior visibility - for operations in
tight areas and to allow the pilot to choose suitable landing
areas. The large "wrap-around" windows and "Above-Cab"
wings allow unparalleled visibility. The tricycle gear
configuration also allows excellent forward visibility while on
the ground - crucial when operated in off-airport fields.
