Like its predecessors, the STOL CH 750 offers extraordinary STOL performance." — Ed Wischmeyer, In Flight USA, October 2022

" Zenith is always working to make their kits easier to build and the CH 750 is the easiest yet." — Ed Wischmeyer, In Flight USA, October 2022

Zenith Aircraft Company is continually updating its kits to make them easier to build, and the CH 750 Super Duty is the easiest to build yet! Almost every hole in the kit is already drilled to its final size. This minimizes marking, measuring, and drilling, and lets you focus on the fun of seeing the airplane come together before your eyes. The proven blind rivets are the primary fasteners used in the kit. They are extremely simple to set; anyone can learn how in five minutes or less. Putting together the airframe kit takes the average builder just a few hundred hours.

Check out the latest issue of Kitplanes magazine as they chronicle the construction of a custom-built STOL CH 750 Super Duty, nicknamed the CH 750 Super Duty XTREME, by our own Jon Humberd, to learn more about the kit and assembly of this advanced kit.

As a kit aircraft, the builder retains complete control of the “homebuilt” aircraft project, choosing the engine and propeller, panel and avionics, wheels and more. The builder can truly build an aircraft to suit their needs and requirements, determining the features (and budget) of their aircraft.

Zenith Aircraft Company has continued to invest in new manufacturing technology and capabilities in 2022. Earlier this year, Zenith added a second dual spindle high-speed router CNC machining center. With significantly expanded manufacturing capacity Zenith Aircraft continues to offer more final hole size match-drilled parts and assemblies, while also letting Zenith keep aircraft kit manufacturing in the United States despite the tight labor market and increasing prices.
Get a head start in building your own airplane by participating at an upcoming Zenith hands-on workshop to learn all about the skills and tools needed to build your own. Plan now to join us at one of the following workshops:
Zenith Aircraft Company’s workshops are popular with sport aviation enthusiasts, giving them the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on experience in building their own kit airplane. Participants get to actually start assembling kit parts under the direction and guidance of factory professionals, and “graduate” from the workshop upon completing construction of their own aircraft rudder tail section for one of Zenith Aircraft Company’s popular kit aircraft designs, including the high-wing Zenith CH 750 series or the sleek low-wing Zenith CH 650 cruiser.
Cost of the workshop class is just $375.00 (or $425 for the CH 750 Super Duty model) and includes the complete rudder kit for a Zenith aircraft. Additional helpers (spouse, friend or children) are encouraged to attend and can participate at no additional charge. The hands-on workshop makes an excellent getaway for you and your spouse or a friend!
