First introduced in 1986, the STOL CH 701 aircraft was developed asan off-airport, short take-off and landing kit aircraft to fulfill thedemanding requirements of both sport pilots and first-timebuilders. With the STOL CH 701, designer Chris Heintz combined thefeatures and advantages of a â€œrealâ€ airplane with the short-fieldcapabilities of an â€œultralightâ€ aircraft. The aircraft features fixedleading-edge slats for high lift, full-span flaperons (both aileronsand flaps), an all-flying rudder, and durable all-metalconstruction.
The STOL CH 701 was not designed to be just another â€˜prettyâ€™ lightaircraft, but was engineered to offer outstanding short take-off andlanding performance, all-metal durability, and unparalleled ease ofconstruction. With form following function, the STOL CH701 looks likea â€˜Sky Jeepâ€™, as it is often called by its owners.
Popular since 1986, there are hundreds of STOL CH 701 aircraftflying around the world! Not many of the more than 500 STOL CH 701â€™sflying today can be found at airports â€“ most are operated from shortoff-airport grass fields, in backyard fields and in remote areas. Theaircraftâ€™s all-metal construction makes it suitable for continuousoutdoor storage â€“ providing their owners with continuous cost savings(no hanger or tie-down fees).
