Short takeoff and landing flying demonstration in the STOL CH 701

Missionary pilot Stephan Saint demonstrates some of the Zenith STOL's short rough field capabilities. The STOL aircraft is equipped with fixed leading edge wing slats, full-length flaperons, and large tail control surfaces to excel at slow flight. This video was produced by i-tec (, and was part of the Zenith STOL flying presentation at Oshkosh AirVenture on July 30, 2009. This 701 was built in Ecuador, South America.
