Zenith Now Shipping CH 750 Cruzer Kits

Designed For Runways And Increased Cruising Speed

Zenith Aircraft has begun shipping kits for its newest model, the CH 750 Cruzer. Introduced last April in Lakeland, Florida, the Cruzer is based on the popular STOL CH 750 but built for actual runways with smaller wheels (with optional wheel fairings), and a new wing and tail design for higher cruise speed.

The kit is aimed at first-time builders using use modern CAD and CNC technologies to ensure complete construction of the airframe with simple hand tools and minimal skills. All holes are pre-drilled and line up perfectly.
 
"It will take about 400 hours to construct the all-metal airframe," said Sebastien Heintz, Zenith president. "People are going to be surprised by how quickly it goes together and how much fun it is to work on it."
 
Kits come with illustrated construction manuals to take the guesswork out of building and assure a smooth assembly process. Zenith offers a half dozen powerplant options, complete with mounts and cowling. The prototype is powered by a 130-hp UL 350iS engine and features the Dynon SkyView glass panel.
 
As equipped, the aircraft has an empty weight of 780 pounds, giving it a useful load of 540 pounds, which keeps it at the LSA limit of 1,320 pounds required for sport pilots. Airborne, the CH 750 will cruise at 118 mph, climb at 1,200 fpm, and stall at 39 mph. The controls are light and responsive.
 
With its raised skylight and wrap-around windshield/windows, the Cruzer has some of the greatest visibility available in a kit plane. Sales for the new kits have been brisk thus far, Heinz said. "Feedback has been positive and the builders are excited by their progress."
