Demo Flight: Zenith Aircraft's STOL CH 750 Super Duty

Flying the Zenith STOL CH 750 Super Duty: Roger takes Mark (a seasoned airline captain) flying in the STOL CH750SD at the most recent Zenith factory workshop. Listen in as they discuss the hands-on kit aircraft building workshop while flying the popular Sky Jeep!
What do you get when you take a light sport bush airplane and put 180-HP to 200-HP on the nose? You get a machine that is ready to take on the world—a world of short strips, sandbars, and mountain meadows. Zenith Aircraft started with a STOL CH 750 aircraft, lengthened the wings, enlarged the tail, beefed up a few things here and there—and created a new model called the Super Duty (SD), a three-place STOL aircraft. Think of a real pickup truck, not one of those fancy citified vehicles. We’re talking about something that you can throw the tools into and go running off the landscape to patch a hole in the fence. The Super Duty is that kind of machine, with the muscle to get you there and back.
Introduced in 2017 at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, the STOL CH 750 Super Duty was a surprise to almost everyone that walked up to it. Zenith did a good job of keeping the project under wraps until they were ready for the big reveal, and it was a surprise in more ways than one. Not only did it sport the big engine (200-HP) and a jump seat (rear seat) and sit on large tundra tires, it also featured one of the most unique innovations of the year—the “Unpanel.” This out-of-the-box concept does away with the traditional instrument panel, substituting instead a single glass-panel EFIS mounted on a moveable arm so that it can be positioned in front of either the pilot or passenger, or moved out of the way of both.
