dpaton Posted October 30, 2005 Share Posted October 30, 2005 This is my shameless request. There are many like it, but this one is mine. I'm looking to hook up with pilots of a flying example of both a Cozy IV and a Long-EZ for a ride and some hanger flying in the Chicago (06C, KDPA, KARR, KIKK, in order of preference) area. I'll by gas, lunch, or both depending on the quality of the offer. I'm not begging on my knees, but that's the next step if this doesn't work Circumstances have removed the plans I had from my poessession, and while I have a line on complete replacement versions for both, I want to take the opportunity to make dead sure of which I really want before I spend the next 6-8 years of my life building something other than what I really truly want and need. Disclaimer: I don't have a PPL. I have more than a couple of hours in ultralights, but an UL is not a canard. I've got lots of sim hours in a highly accurate sim, but a sim is not a canard. I've spent weeks and weeks and weeks over the years imagining what it would be like, but my imagination is definitely not a canard. It's been too long since I got a ride for those memories to be reliable. I need a refresher. I don't particularly want to fly the planes I'm looking for demo rides in, since that's a major imposition on the pilot, and I don't feel terribly comfortable with someone else's plane as an unlicensed passenger with no type experience. I could be convinced otherwise if the PIC really wants me to, as I have some yoke time with GA planes, albeit none of it legal. I mainly want to see how comfortable the airframes (still) are for me, how well I deal with them now that I'm beyond the giddy discovery phase, and get a little demo about how they perform, probably from the back seat. I've been the GIB since before I could see over the panel in a Cessna 150 (nearly 2 decades). I have my own headset, and I'm more than comfortable around planes. This is the very last step before I start mixing epoxy. Help? Thanks -dave Quote This is not a sig. This is a duck. Quack. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
