Crazycanuck Posted March 5, 2008 Share Posted March 5, 2008 There is a gravel/sand airfield within less than 1 mile of our family cottage. I would like to be able the land my Cozy at this field because the closest paved airport is 60 miles away. I was thinking about using a 12” nose wheel and larger wheels on the main gear. In addition I would fashion some kind of fender on the nose wheel to help prevent debris from being kicked up into the prop, and use wheel pants on the main gear. I would likely be the one maintaining the airfield as it has essentially been abandoned, but has been used in the last 10 years. So I am trying to figure out ways to remove any stones and achieve a hard packed surface. Does anybody have experience using pusher prop aircraft like the Cozy on unimproved airfield surfaces?
