Airframe maintenance and insurance


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm looking into buying a Long-ez.

What should I expect to dish out for maintenance other than the engine?

And how easy is it to get insured on the Long ez? 

I have 3000hrs TT with about 500 of that in single engine pistons. No time in canards.


Thanks :)

If you do your own maintenance--which you are allowed to do--the main cost will be an annual condition inspection at $500-$1000.  It seems like most insurance companies are requiring a CFI checkout and 10 hrs in type.  There is some wiggle-room there.  They might accept a checkout in a Cozy or with an experienced LEZ pilot.  Liability insurance around $700 per year.  My liability was $533 this year.  Hull could run a couple thousand.

Cozy IV N13AM-750 hrs, Long-EZ-85 hrs and sold
