As their names imply, the CH 701/801 are utility aircraft kits made to come and go from tight places. The CH 701 emerged in 1986 with fixed leading-edge slats for high lift, full-span flaperons (both ailerons and flaps) and an all-flying rudder. A four-seat version, the CH 801, is also flying. Both aircraft are designed to fly on wheels, floats and skis.
