STOL CH 801 Cabin
STOL CH 801 Cabin

STOL CH 801: Designed for Superior VisibilityVISIBILITY: Unlike other high-wing designs, the STOL CH 801'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.

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.

STOL CH 801 Cabin Dimensions (approx.)

The cabin interior is ergonomically designed to provide comfort for four large adults, while being easy to convert for cargo-carrying applications. Large doors on either side allow easy access to the cabin from both sides, and can be quickly removed.

Superior Visibility

The adjustable front seats fold forward for easy access to the rear seats / cargo area.  With anticipated applications for mission use, the rear seat area can be converted for cargo use (including 50 gallon drums), or the cabin can be reconfigured for a berth (patient on a stretcher) across the front and back right-hand seats, with the pilot in the front left seat and a doctor or nurse in the left rear seat.

New Bubble Windows on the STOL CH 801 increase the cabin width to 52-inches (130 cm.) at the shoulders:

The standard tricycle gear configuration maximizes forward visibility when taxiing, while also providing the added benefit of a level cabin while on the ground, to facilitate access to the cabin and to maximize pilot and passenger comfort.

Tricycle Gear = Level Cabin


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 used from either side, and does not limit visibility of the instrument panel. The dual rudder pedals also steer the nose-wheel (direct linkage), and are equipped with hydraulic toe-brakes (standard on the pilot’s side).

The stock instrument panel measures nearly 41 inches (104 cm.) across and 11 inches (28 cm.) high, providing plenty of room for custom avionics and IFR instrumentation (depth behind the panel is up to 21 inches / 53 cm.).  In the kit, the pre-formed instrument panel bulkhead is supplied in 'blank' form to allow the builder to fully customize the layout of instruments.
