Vince's STOL CH 801

 

Vince's second STOL CH 801 project (N9078K), also powered by a Franklin 220-hp engine is nearly identical to his first project.

Vince's first STOL CH 801 project:

"This is my STOL CH 801 powered with a Franklin 220 hp engine and 76-inch Magnum IVO prop. It features a full panel. Construction time was 1100 hours, including engine installation, interior and paint. It flies like a dream and lands like a docile lamb. Climb-outs are hard to believe: 1100 fpm at 96 mph.  As you can tell I'm very pleased. The people at Zenith are great to deal with - very helpful. The 801 is everything they say it is, and more. Need I say more?"
- Vince B.,
excerpted from EAA Sport Aviation magazine (July 2001).

The impressive interior includes a full panel and comfortable leather seats with full power seat adjustment (borrowed from a Chevy Blazer).
