Stumbled on this site a couple days ago looking for info on the Long_EZE.
I'm 64 and unlikely to build anything but I subscribed to the CP back in the late 70's early 80's until it was finished. Always planed to build...
I flew sailplanes and then power (Cessna 152/172) back then. Never finished getting the power license as I was also racing formula cars. There was one of the early VariEZE's at the airport I flew out of.
Even though it is unlikely I will ever build or fly a Rutan designed canard, I'm still interested. Started racing again a couple years ago, then got too busy for that, plan to start back up next year.
Looking around the site (hours and hours of reading ) I don't see anyone near the Charlotte, NC area, but if anyone is, and would like a hand, I'd love to help. Free help is always good.
