Off airport: A closer look flying the incredible Zenith STOL CH 750 Super Duty "Sky Jeep" sport utility aircraft, powered by the 205-hp IO-375 engine with Cato propeller, and equipped with the repositionable "un-panel" with Avilution glass panel display. Check out the amazing performance and incredible visibility!
The STOL CH 750 Super Duty is the latest model in the Zenith high-wing lineup. The family resemblance between the STOL CH 750 Super Duty (SD) and the original STOL CH 750 light-sport aircraft is obvious, but the Super Duty offers a much increased useful load, the addition of a jump seat in the big rear cabin area, and more powerful engine choices for maximum short take-off and landing (STOL) capability.
Like its predecessors, the STOL CH 750 SD offers extraordinary STOL performance. The factory demonstrator aircraft can take off in only 115 feet with 205 horsepower. It climbs at 1,350 feet per minute, and cruise speed is respectable at 105 mph in stock configuration (with bush tires). The landing roll is just 150 feet. The 34 mile per hour stall speed means the airplane excels at slow flight, with excellent maneuverability right down to the gentle, mushing stall.
This STOL CH 750 SD is powered by a 205 hp IO-375 engine from Aero Sport Power. Like all Chris Heintz designs, the Super Duty is not designed around any particular engine, which gives you the freedom to choose the engine that best fits your performance needs and budget restrictions. The suitable range is 150-230 horsepower.
Like the other Zenith CH 750 models, the new Super Duty offers a huge cabin, side-by-side seating, easy cabin access though two big swing-up bubble doors, adjustable seats, a raised skylight, and lots of head room. Over the nose visibility on the ground is excellent because of the tricycle gear, and the direct-linkage steerable nosewheel makes ground handling easy.
