matt cozy1429 Posted June 11, 2007 Share Posted June 11, 2007 Oh wise builders/flyers of canard aircraft. Looking at buying a non flying Long EZ. Engine, avionics, controls have all been removed. Good work but an empty shell. I would love to rebuild it myself. It has previously been registered. There is no way to get a repairman certificate out of it no matter how much work I do...correct? Is it legal for me to work on it and then have an A&P check the work? Would an A&P sign off another guys work? Does it all have to be done by a certified mech? Good advice from an experienced guy was that most A&Ps are not familiar with Long EZs and beware or any work they do on anything other then the engine. The other option I have is to pay to have the work done at a shop that specializes in composite work put it back in flying condition and pick up a flying aircraft. But it will cost a lot more and I will not gain any experience. Any opinions/advice would be greatly appreciated. Matt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
