Builder/Pilot in SW Missouri


Recommended Posts

I'm quite deep into the considerations of building a Cozy Mark IV. It seems odd that I'm so far along in my research and have yet to actually see one of these aircraft up-close and to fly in one. So, I'm looking for a builder/pilot in the vicinity of Springfield, MO who would be willing to show me their plane both on the ground and in-flight. I appreciate any help that anyone can provide and am looking forward to getting to know the members of the community better.

You should also look to joining the CSA - which is a large canard organization. You can get more info at http://www.ez.org. If you really want to see the canard world check out the Rough River Flyin at Rough River State Parkl in Ky (I have yet to make that one).

Thanks, I'll check out the CSA and the Rough River Flyin. I lived in Wisconsin for 15 years before getting into aviation and never made it to AirVenture; I'm already hoping to make an appearance at OSH in late July.

There are numerous COZY's not far from you. None of the owners frequent this forum, however. To get in touch with them, you can join the COZY mailing list (see the address below) and you'll receive a database of all members which you can sort by state to find folks near you.

 

As recommended, joining the CSA is a very good idea, too.

Trans4md,

 

I know well where you are coming from. I was well into chapter 6 of my Cozy before I ever saw one in person. I went to Rough River in '05, and was convinced I made the right choice. Nothing like seeing 50-75 canards in one place to get you building. I was able to ride in Bill Kastenholz' plane on that trip, and a few years ago my daughter and I caught a ride in Marc's plane as well at the Copperstate fly-in in Arizona.

 

Join the lists as has already been mentioned and check in often. Even when I have not been able to build anything, I have always kept up daily with the fora.

 

Good luck,

 

Kraig
