Radioflyer Posted January 14, 2005 Share Posted January 14, 2005 Hi all. I'm here in Massachusetts planning to buy a completed LongEz sometime soon. I'll be transitioning from a C172. Before making a comittment, I'd like to get some stick time in a canard. So I'm wandering what a good approach would be. The LongEz has limited rear seat controls, but that would be good for initial in the air familiarity. Front pilot could then setup for in the pattern flying with go arounds. Later, the transitioning pilot would be up front doing slow taxi maneuvers. Then gradually working up to 45 knot front wheel only liftoffs. Ultimately, with safety pilot in back, a first takeoff is attempted. How have nonbuilder/owner LongEz pilots made the transition? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
