Long EZ 95% Complete


Recommended Posts

Hello all. I recently came across a good opportunity on a Long EZ that is almost finished.


I live in Colorado and fly from the Erie airport. I have seen a few Long EZ's in hangars at Erie and hoping some of those folks frequent this website.


Any Front Range Long EZ pilots who are willing to answer some questions about assembly of the airplane and getting it flying please respond. I would also like the opportunity to ride in a Long EZ.


My uncle built the plane from scratch and all the pieces are complete. Please see pics attached. In his words..."I could have it ready to fly in 3-4 weeks"


He is a 15k hour airline pilot, and I am a 250 hour IT Professional. If you are available for a conversation please respond.

I too am an IT professional. Composites are easy to work with even if you've never done something like that before. I'd probably jump on it if I could...however, remember the old adage 90% done and 90% to go.


There is plenty of support on this group and other canard organizations CSA, http://forum.canardaviation.com/ and others.


Good for it! :D

Hey, welcome :) I'm just up the hill from you near Estes. A Cozy builder though.


I know a handful of fliers/builders at KLMO. Curt Boyll (VE pilot, Cozy builder), 'Ron' (Cozy builder), Ion Huss (LE pilot, previous EAA tech), and another name that slips me (LE rebuild). I know there are canards in Greeley and Ft. Love, but I don't have contact details. Don't forget Rob Martinson (Denver, VE), and freeflightcomposites.com (Burrall Sanders) near the Springs.
