Impressive short take off and landing with the STOL CH 750

Demonstration of the very short take-off and short landing capability of the lightweight Zenith CH750 aircraft, made possible by the fixed leading edge wing slats... and some headwind! The two-seat Zenair light sport utility plane is powered by an air-cooled direct-drive Jabiru 3300 engine (105-hp@2950 rpm).

We should have demonstrated it by taking off across the runway.

Mike I agree "some headwind"???? However, damn that was short, but Roger is the master. In my opinion.

I would say "some headwind" is an understatment.....looks like about 20 knots to me...Still, very impressive. For short landing, I have started landing with my brakes already applied before touch down. My personal measured best is 240 feet with 7 knot headwind.
