Work on the creation of a light multi-purpose aircraft model Zenair Zenith CH 200 began in 1968 year, at the same time the design was chosen by the German aircraft manufacturers, while the technical part has been developed jointly by French and Canadian aviarazrabotchikov, although in fact, the aircraft subsequently produced to Aircraft «Zenair» company.

In view of the simplicity of the design of the aircraft, and the actual absence of unnecessary elements, both in appearance and inside the aircraft, the aircraft was quickly constructed, and in March 1970, the aircraft made its first ascent into the air, which proved to be quite successful in connection With which the project was put into mass production, where it was before 1976 year. Subsequently, the production of the aircraft was officially discontinued, but the company "Zenair" continued to produce aircraft plans up to 1999 year, which allowed anyone, with a relatively minimal cost and time, to assemble a multifunctional aircraft on their own.
