Zenith Aircraft has selected Superior Air Parts XP-320 engine as a builder option on its STOL CH750 and CH750 Cruiser kit aircraft.
“When we look for improved products and additional options to offer our builder base, we look for several traits in a company, including high product quality, superb customer support, a commitment to innovation and outstanding value,” stated Sebastian Heintz, president, Zenith Aircraft. “Superior Air Parts exemplifies all of those traits and more.”
“Everyone here at Zenith Aircraft is extremely happy to have the opportunity to collaborate with the team at Superior Air Parts to create the new XP-320z and XP-320zp engines for the CH750 aircraft family,” he added. “Not only do they produce exceptional engines, but Superior also gives our customers the option to go to their factory and assemble their own engine under the supervision of an experienced engine builder. No one else in the industry offers an engine build school and we feel our customers will love to participate in the program.”

“Sebastian and his team wanted to offer his builders two horsepower options, so the XP-320 for Zenith CH750 will be available as the 160-horsepower XP-320z and the 165-horsepower XP-320zp,” Little said. “The only difference between the two engines will be that the higher-performance XP-320zp will have 9:1 pistons and deliver 160-horsepower. We’re thinking that will be the engine of choice for the STOL CH750 light sport utility kit plane.”
“Another benefit to the XP-320z and XP-320zp is that they will both run on either standard 100LL Avgas or 91/98 octane auto fuel,” he said. “That will give Zenith owners around the world a source for available and affordable fuel.”
