The Zenith STOL CH 701 is a two seat aircraft designed by Canadian aeronautical engineer Chris Heintz. The CH 701 first flew in 1986.The kit is produced and distributed in the USA by the Zenith Aircraft Company, and complete drawings (blueprints and manuals) are also available for the design.

As well several companies offer quick-build kits, which reduces the building times of the aircraft. In Europe, the CH 701 was manufactured under license by Czech Aircraft Works (CZAW) from 1992 until 2006, when the license agreement was ended.

The CH 701 has been referred to as the "JEEP" of the light sport aircraft industry, for its rugged design. The CH 701 features a high-lift wing with full-span, non-movable leading edge slats, an all flying rudder, large tires, flaperons and an inverted elevator, that contribute to the aircraft's STOL capabilities. The CH 701 is also available with straight floats or amphibious floats.

The STOL CH 701 has the unique distinction of being one of the most copied light sport aircraft on the market. Over a dozen unauthorized versions have been produced around the world.

The CH 701 fits into TP 10141 the Light Aircraft Manufacturers Association of Canada (LAMAC) design standards, and  can be built and flown as a basic ultra-light, advanced ultra-light or amateur-built aircraft in Canada

The CH 701 can be flown under microlight/ultralight rules in several other countries also. U.S. pilots may fly the CH 701 under FAA Light-sport Aircraft rules or as an experimental amateur-built aircraft.
