WANTED: Varieze Plans

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a set of Varieze plans. I'm looking to build on my own, from scratch, but I could potentially buy a low-progress build that includes the plans, if the price is right. Contact me here. Thanks.

Have you considered the LongEZ (OpenEZ) instead of the VariEZ??

I have considered the Long-EZ. In fact, it was the aircraft that inspired me in the first place. Operating albeit w/ some admitted ignorance on my part, my desire for the Varieze over the Long is one of a little bit economics and a little bit...well, purpose.

I recently purchased Cozy MKIV plans #1508. I chose the Cozy MKIV (which I was lead to by the Long) based upon the practicality: range, passengers/payload, comfort, cruising speed. And, despite everything I've read warning against this other factor...emotion. I was inspired by the Long EZ and chose to go the canard/composite route, from scratch.

But back to "purpose". I'll get the practicality out of the Cozy. The Varieze or Long will be another project...something I can be a little more innovative on, that I can explore a bit more with and take a bit slower.

Amazing what a little more research will turn up. Found the info on the Open-EZ and the CD from TERF. Looks like I've found essentially what I need. Now I just need to convince the wife (t-minus 3 days) that we need to move the addition to the house/garage up by a year...

Thanks.

Good Deal;

 

I don't think building a Long takes significantly more time then a Vari. IMHO, To get the maximum return on my investment (time and money) I would build the Long.
