ZENAIR INTRODUCES NEW DESIGN AT SUN'N FUN
The Cruzer has arrived!
Zenair Limited of Midland, ON, unveiled its new light aircraft design at the EAA Sun'n Fun Fly-in last week. The all-metal two-seat CH 750 Cruzer is the latest design from Chris Heintz. While clearly influenced by its well-known STOL predecessors (the STOL CH 701 "Sky Jeep", STOL CH 750 and four-seat STOL CH 801 sport utility aircraft), the CH 750 Cruzer is an all-new design.
The Zenair CH 750 Cruzer features an all-new airfoil supported by a single stream-lined strut. Compared to the STOL CH 750, the empennage has also been redesigned for its new mission, with a symmetrical stabilizer and a shortened horizontal-tail span. The vertical-tail features a fin and rudder (replacing the traditional all-moving rudder design of the Chris Heintz STOL series). In keeping with its mission, the Cruzer is fitted with 5.00 x 5 aircraft wheels and sleek new wheel fairings. The instrument panel of the new design is also wider and more conventional than with the STOL CH 750 (that has a narrower instrument panel to improve forward-visibility in extreme nose-high attitudes associated with STOL flying).
