Zenith Announces STOL CH 701 Update
Designer Chris Heintz has introduced 4th edition design updates to the popular STOL CH 701 short take-off and landing (STOL) kit aircraft.
Gross weight of the two-seat all-metal aircraft has been increased from 960 lbs. to 1,100 lbs. to better accommodate the installation of new engines such as the 100-hp Rotax 912S. New wing tanks (2 x 10 US gal.) are now standard equipment with the design, as well as new top-hinged "swing-up" doors and a formed acrylic windshield. The new 4th edition blueprints are CAD-drawn for maximum clarity and detail.
The high wing STOL CH 701 design features fixed leading edge wing slats to provide excellent short take-off and landing performance and great grass-field (off airport) capability. A typical take-off roll is less than 100 feet.

Atlantic Aero Certifies 310 hp
Non-Turbo Conversion For Cessna 210s
Atlantic Aero and sister company Aero Modification & Consulting, LLC,
Greensboro, North Carolina, received STC approval for their Teledyne Continental IO 550-P on turbocharged Cessna 210 models made from 1970-1984.
The engines, marketed under the name “550 T.I. Engine Conversion,” has significant performance gains below 10,000 feet MSL, reduced fuel consumption and up to a 43 percent increase TBO over the turbocharged airplane.
The conversion incorporates a Tuned Induction System and Atlantic’s six-point, SmoothRide Engine Mount System. The propeller is replaced with a Hartzell Scimitar Propeller.
Cooling requirements of the new engine are significantly reduced and are provided by redesigned engine cowling air inlets. The cowl flaps are also redesigned, reducing the aircraft’s empty weight by over 75 lbs.
“We have thousands of hours of flight experience with this engine and it has performed flawlessly,” said Atlantic Aero’s COO Jim
First-Time Winners in 25th Air Race Classic
Dene Chabot-Fence, Carson City, Nevada, and Gloria May, Kerman, California, won the 25th annual Air Race Classic all women’s cross-country speed race in a Piper PA28-180 (Cherokee). They finished less than a minute ahead of Sophia Payton, Clearwater, Florida and Bernice Barris, Cleveland, Ohio, in a Cessna 182S. This is Chabot-Fence/May’s first win after eight consecutive top-ten finishes since 1994.
The race began on June 26 in San Diego with 31 airplanes and finished on June 29 at Sporty’s Pilot Shop in Batavia, Ohio. Original plans were altered by bad weather, unfortunately, causing the official race to end at Pratt, Kansas. The women flew to Batavia on their own in honor of the race’s silver anniversary.
Airplanes were handicapped based primarily on horsepower and design. Winners were determined by how well they exceeded their handicaps in ground speed (knots).
The 2002 Air Race Classic will be from Silver City, New Mexico, to Hampton, Virginia. Contact Pauline Glasson, 361/289-1101, or
& A: Question of the Week
To EAA Government and Industry
Where in the FARs does it require that a homebuilt airplane be inspected every 12 months? - Via e-mail
The answer to this takes a couple of FAR's. FAR 43 covers all maintenance, preventative maintenance,
rebuilding and alteration on U.S.-certificated aircraft. However, FAR 43.1(b) says the FAR 43 requirements do not apply to experimental amateur-built (homebuilt) aircraft.
FAR 91.319(b) says that no person may operate an experimental aircraft unless (a) it is controllable throughout it's normal range of speeds and maneuvers and (b) it has no hazardous operating characteristics.
FAR 91.319(C) says the FAA Administrator will issue "special operating limitations".
FAA Order 8130.2D paragraph 134b(22) (special amateur-built operating limitations) says no person shall (mandatory term) operate this aircraft unless within the preceding 12 calendar months it has had a condition inspection performed in accordance with the scope and detail of Appendix D to FAR 43 and found to be in a condition for safe operation.
The special operating limitations are issued by the FAA Administrators agent (FAA FSDO/MIDO Safety Inspector or DAR) at the time the amateur-built aircraft is initially inspected & certificated, and state you must follow the guidance of FAR 43 to complete an annual condition inspection and certify that the aircraft is safe to fly per FAR 91.319.
