Zenith STOL CH 701 Kit for Under $30K
Combining the economical 85-hp Jabiru 2200A engine with the Light Sport-legal CH 701 airframe, Zenith Aircraft has been able to produce a complete kit for $29,980, including airframe, basic instruments, engine, exhaust and propeller. Bubble windows, electric trim, extended fuel capacity and additional baggage handling are optional. Paint and interior are not included in the kit price.
Sebastien Heintz of Zenith explained that the lower cost of the Jabiru engine makes this package possible. The Jabiru is less expensive than the Rotax 912, and the firewall-forward kit is simpler.
The two-seat CH 701 was introduced in 1986 but has seen refinements over the years including CNC cut and drilled aluminum sheets.
