9 foot garage door


Recommended Posts

I want to build a Cozy MKIV. Does anyone have any experience in getting the fuselage with wing roots (11 feet wide I understand) out of a garage with 9 foot wide, 8 foot tall doors? The hypotenuese of this door is 12 feet (9 squared plus 8 squared equals 145 and the square root of that is 12) and so I believe the fuselage without wings should fit through the opening. Do you agree? Dennis

I don't have experience with it, but you have to remember that the main spar is a box shape which will have to be accounted for. I forget the dimensions, but it seems to me that 12' will be awfully close. Maybe try making up a dummy spar of the same dimensions out of scrap wood and then try it out. But then remember that it will be 600-700 lbs that you will be moving....
