Trailering a long ez ?


Recommended Posts

By tilting the fuselage 20-30 degrees, it's not longer a wide load. You'd probably build a couple of well-braced wooden jigs to support the fuselage.


The wings are awkward. Best idea I've seen was a double-decker framework over a pickup truck so that you can stack the two wings upside down over the truck with winglets hanging over the tailgate.


You couldn't fly it home?

Thanks for the response and the pics, I saw that someone loaded one onto a car carrier too. Fixtures to hold the wings look very important but may be difficult to construct in a hurry, like when you drive somewhere to pick up a plane. Mabye I can fly one back home, but may wind up getting one that's not airworthy.


Anyone have tips on what to look for on a used ez? I've read about the corrosion issues at the wing root joints, on the rutan website, I've also read about looking for delaminations, exposure to excessive heat.....
