A heapin' helpin' of builder links

Builder Progress Reports & Motivation 15 Feb 2018
Credit to Chris Groenewald for resurrecting links from the late Tom Tugan's website.  Unfortunately some of them are dead links but a lot are still good and there were quite a few I was not familiar with.  This'll give you a few pleasant hours of reading.  I started to weed out the dead links but it was driving me crazy.  :-)   -Kent   http://www.ez.org/ca...mars/index.html :  Craig Kossowski  http://www.marcnadine.com/ : Marc/Nadine Parmeleehttp://www.mykitlog.com/crazycanuck/ : Aaron Fennellhttp://www.cozybuild...glia/index.html ...

Newbie with questions

Long-EZ 14 Feb 2018
Hi all,   I'm an airline pilot and always wanted to own a plane. So recently I have been looking into experimental aircraft, more specifically aircraft like the RV8 and Long EZ's. The idea is day VFR with the occasional night flight (if that is even allowed under EASA).   I do have quite some questions about the Long EZ. It would be great to have some input from owners/pilots. So here are some of my questions.   - Is there any company that manufactures something like a Long EZ kit?  - Is it a viable option to buy a used Long EZ and strip down the interior in order to reb...

Full dual control

Long-EZ 18 Jan 2018
Hi, has anyone built a Long EZ with full dual controls. I know that the rear seat is a tight fit but is it possible to modify the designs to extend the fuselage so that the rear seat has more room, or increase the height of the fuselage to give both seats a more upright position? Adam

Visiting the bay area

Introductions, Visits, Sightings & Rides 03 Jan 2018
I’m visiting the Bay Area for the week (Mountain View) and was wondering if there any Cozy (or similar) that I could take a look at, possibly get a ride in. I’m thinking about building a Cozy (or aerocanard) in the near future but have never seen one in person. Thanks, Mike

left / right fuel tank selector handle

Long-EZ 02 Jan 2018
Hi   I am having trouble inflight reaching the L/R fuel tank selector handle located in the usual place between the pilots legs.   Unfortunately, I am 173 cm in height, sit in a raised position, my arms are too short, I can only just reach the handle with the tips of my fingers and my head is hitting the canopy during the tank change, it sometimes takes me a couple of shots to complete the change. All in all an unpleasant experience.   Does anyone know where I can buy an extended L / R fuel tank selector handle that I can reach more easily ?   Are there any other si...
