Sales I've seen

Recommended Posts

This EZ today (pics):   N345R, 1995 model.  Barnstormers.    Lots of updating needed but something could be made of this one.  Fixing that ugly access door cutout would be high on my to-do list.  Visualize it with a fresh new panel.

Look very E-Racer-esque. Looks to be built to a high standard from what little we can see - a bit of a contrast to the previous candidate.

Hi Joe,

yep, I tried that and found "SCHWECHTEN PHYSICIAN SERVICES PLLC" and an address, but since he was posting to sell (Buly's old plane), I hoped someone might have his email or cell #...

From Kent's posting about the sale, I hoped someone might know what site the sale was posted on, and then I'd be able to find the info there perhaps

Does anyone have any comps on what this should be worth? Im located in AZ and have been after a canard for years now, and side by side is even more preferable. Any more info would be great.

 

Any prebuy recommendations in the area?

I'd expect an E-Racer to go for a bit more than a Long-EZ with the same equipment and same quality. Is this Lynn Erickson's plane? If so, I'm told that it was very high quality. But without knowing the state of the engine, it could be worth anything from $25K to $60K. The panel, while full, is old, but if everything works, there may be no need to do anything to it. If the engine's pristine, relatively low time, and the plane's show quality (doubtful from the two pics, but you never know) it could be worth more. All depends.

See:

https://www.burnsideaerospace.com/pre-buy-examination-information

for info on the services I provide. Phoenix is about a 2 hour flight from KTSP, and I've done numerous PB's in AZ.

Today on Craigslist.  Varieze first discussed here November 20th   https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/21972-sales-ive-seen/?do=findComment&comment=73292  reduced from $11500 to $6500.   https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/wsh/avo/d/new-richmond-varieze-project-new-price/7301436431.html    Yeah, I thought it was pricey the first time through. 

Sometimes there are interesting things in Craig's Aviation section if you have the patience to go through them.  Like this Ellison today https://portland.craigslist.org/clk/avo/d/camas-ellison-efs-throttle-body/7305953549.html    The easiest way is to google search "site:craigslist.org [your item]" or if you have selected an aviation section for one city, keep clicking new cities and it will show their aviation sections.  Yeah, you can waste gobs of time with that one.  😞

I bet there are a LOT of the EZ that have just sat and neglected to reregister - so the number from BMC could be off a bit.  Would be nice to be able to get the "fell out of registration" list and ping them!   I think people get excited and fly for a bit - then have other things come up in life (children, grandchildren, no-work, etc...) that puts a damper on their flying... then after a year or 5, they keep thinking they will get back into it - but there is no motivator. 😞   I am a fan of Mike Patey.  They are working on a "program" to connect newer pilots to these "old farts" - and offer to partner - or rent their planes (with hope that this remotivates the "old farts" as well as brings joy to newer pilots). This would even help the "unable" "old farts" to get back in the air - share some war stories, and be a positive influence on a younger pilot.   This idea also helps share the expense... as the EZ insurance is going up 30-50% (and probably going to continue to trend this way for the next unknown amount of time!).   We have 3 planes at 28a that should be flying.   I am connecting with them to find out the why - and the "hey, would you be interested in flying it again" movement with the above mentioned mindset...  Think globally - act locally...

I am not flying because (1) I used ALL of my time working on the Longeze and am not current

(2) I come to Maui every year because Washington state is too cold      

(3) My airplane is at OLM; I have been "trapped on Maui" for 18 months now by the virus

(4) When the hours were flown off, I still did not have wheel pants, the cowling was MUCH too heavy, etc. so it sits in the hangar in Olympia in 3 pieces.

Have a good day, guys.

The listing says it needs an engine and there's no mention of the avionics, but it's worth a look. 

It's setup as a TriQ, which suggests it had (or should have) an O-200 engine in it.
