Bigger and Better Zenith STOL:
We've made the popular Zenith STOL CH 750 light sport utility kit aircraft even bigger and better!
The STOL CH 750 cabin, which by all measures is already very roomy for a light aircraft, has been increased in size by raising the cabin height by nearly three inches (or 70 mm.)
Here's a side view approximation depicting the curved top "sky light" window
The cabin frame's top diagonal cross member has been replaced by two beefy smaller diagonal "hand-holds" by the front of the cabin, and the formed plexiglass top window adds to the lifting surfaces of the aircraft, to provide better STOL performance and capability.
Here's a walk-around video clip of the new bigger STOL CH 750 cabin:
The larger cabin is the latest development in the Chris Heintz STOL design program which has a long history of innovation in the development of a light sport utility aircraft (or "sky jeep" as they are often called by their owners). With the taller cabin with airfoil top, the STOL CH 750 design continues to offer an "above-cab" wing design to maximize visibility:

The Zenith STOL line of aircraft was first introduced as a single model in 1986, the STOL CH 701.
