This site I hope to devote entirely to the building of my 701 Zenith kit airplane.

One of my projects is the construction of an all aluminum two seat airplane kit manufactured by Zenith Air in Mexico Missouri.


This is the character building the plane.

Some Info;

First introduced in 1986, the STOL CH 701 aircraft was developed as an "off-airport" short take-off and landing kit aircraft to fulfill the demanding requirements of both sport pilots and first-time builders.
With the STOL CH 701, designer Chris Heintz combined the features and advantages of a "real" airplane with the short-field capabilities of an "ultralight" aircraft. The aircraft features fixed leading-edge slats for high lift, full-span flaperons (both ailerons and flaps), an all-flying rudder, and durable all-metal construction.
Not many of the more than 400 STOL CH 701s flying today can be found at airports - most are operated from short off-airport grass fields. The aircrafts all-metal construction makes it suitable for continuous outdoor storage - providing their owners with continuous cost savings
