Could someone please advise best place to get a canopy - tinted preferably - for a Varieze?

I've been Googling but there doesn't seem to be anything recent - aside from Spruce Europe for a boggling amount of money!

The canopy on our early 80's build needs replacing.

Thank ya

You might try this place. www.airplaneplastics.com

It doesn't look too hard to free-blow one. I've not tried it myself but collected info. A pretty simple oven made with kitchen stove elements. See the ones here

I talked with a aircraft designer/builder to insure that these are the guys that he uses and they are

They were the other source besides Todd's Canopies available for our Canard aircraft.

Now that we've lost Todd, this is about the only other option.

 

Delegate this one. Trying to make your own is a fool's errand. You'll spend way more and may never have a useable canopy.
