  • great patrol plane for
    nature protectors


Sport Pilot magazine"I've seen airplanes that could be flown through a hangar, but I think a really good pilot could fly a STOL CH 701 into a hangar, do a 180, and fly back out. The performance is truly that spectacular."

Short-field performance is where the STOL CH 701 aircraft truly excels: It is airborne in less than 37m of unprepared grass, or 27 meters of hard surface, at gross weight. Rotation is possible by the time full throttle setting is applied, and lift-off can begin at 40km/h (in ground effect, with no wind) - all within less than four seconds from stand still. Of course, any headwind shortens the time and distance required for take off.

The STOL CH 701 was not designed to be just another ‘pretty’ light aircraft, but was engineered to offer outstanding short take-off and landing performance, all-metal durability, and unparalleled ease of construction. With form following function, the STOL CH701 looks like a 'Sky Jeep', as it is often called by its owners.

Not many of the more than 500 STOL CH 701’s flying today can be found at airports - most are operated from short off-airport grass fields. The aircraft’s all-metal construction makes it suitable for continuous outdoor storage - providing their owners with continuous cost savings (no hanger or tie-down fees).
