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.:)

Since visiting with Kent (http://www.canardzon...a-good-morning/) I've been rather busy and had little extra time. I finally managed to get up in a sailplane yesterday. I believe I was 19 the last time I flew in a glider, which would be 45 years ago. It was fantastic. So, I'll pursue getting a glider rating to prepare for what comes  later and as a hobby in itself.

 

I really appreciate the Canard Zone, just reading here I've learned a great deal.
