Long EZ Project For Sale - Plans, Hardware, and lots of Materials, Top Quality!


Recommended Posts

Up for sale is a Long EZ project that includes a complete set of plans including original RAF issued serial number, templates, and many upgrade plans (see list below). I bought the project from a composites fabricator who worked at Scaled Composites. The work done so far is top notch quality. The level of completion of each chapter is listed below. The project is currently located in Tehachapi CA (near Mojave) and is available for pickup only.

 

The project includes lots of raw material as well a majority of the required hardware needed to complete the airframe. To buy new all that is included with this project is $10k+. The brand new more expensive items include new brakes, main landing gear bow, brand new canopy, brand new main landing gear wheels, and much more. So much is included that I tried to provide a complete inventory of all that comes with the project listed on my website including 50+ pictures of all the various components. Be sure to browse the pictures on the photo album below to see all that is included.

 

If you are looking at building a Long EZ then this project will give you a great head start, and because it was built thus far by a skilled craftsman who worked for Burt Rutan himself, you can believe in the quality. Email me with any questions!

Asking $4,000 obo for the lot.

Not sure if shipping is affordable.

If that's what holding you back then you better think of another hobby. How do you think we get this stuff? Just as a reference, I bought a fuselage and misc. stuff weighing several hundred pounds from Utah to Michigan for about $350. It was 3 years ago but at least a ballpark range. Still a bargain at twice the shipping. I got Aerocad wings from Florida at half that cost for shipping. I'd say get a rough idea of the weight and size and call around. Don't go UPS. As a matter of fact I used Estes which I believe is in your area.
