Here's a summary of our first ever STOL (short takeoff and landing) competition at the 2014 Zenith Aircraft Open Hangar Day and Fly-In on September 19 & 20, 2014 at the Zenith factory.
Winning performance by Jan Eggenfellner flying a Zenith STOL CH 750 powered by a Viking 110 engine. His take off measured 109 feet, and his precision landing measured 110 feet for a combined winning score of 219 feet.
The EAA staff-built STOL CH 750 plane (powered by an O-200 and piloted by Tracy Buttles was airborne in 121 feet, and Roger Dubbert's take-off roll measured 116-feet in his STOL CH 701 (powered by a Rotax 912 ULS).
This was our first short take-off and short landing (precision) competition and demonstration, held on Friday afternoon. What fun we all had! This was a very informal "competition" to encourage all Zenith owners to participate! This event was sponsored and coordinated by American Light Sport Aircrafters.
