Smokey Posted November 12, 2007 Share Posted November 12, 2007 Hi all, I'm not new to canards, I've been a fan for many years. At age 45 I decided I must follow my lifelong dream of flight and now am obsessed with obtaining my own canard. Being 6'2" and 260lbs, not many aircraft "fit" me. I sat in a non flying LEZ and that was it. Now I need to hitch a ride in a flying AC to confirm my suspicion that Rutan's designs are simply the best. I know w/b could be an issue. I live in Chula Vista which is south of San Diego. I am seeking a ride in any canard in the area and would like to get to know fellow canard aviators. Are there any get togethers or fly-ins in So Cal? I could fly my Cessna 140 (slow bird) to your location. I am also looking for a reasonably priced flying LEZ to purchase. My Vans RV6A build project has lost it's appeal compared to canards. Don't have time to build right now with hectic work schedule but may build in the future.
