Needing information before purchase


Recommended Posts

I'd say there are better choices.  One of the Bearhawks.  Maybe a Van's RV-8.  I have flown my EZ and C-IV at 237# and my wife is about 180-185.  The airplanes will haul you but I am reluctant to fly with people 250+ (in my C-IV) mainly because they can barely fit in the seats.  Nat Puffer, the Cozy developer, and his wife were little people--maybe 180 and 125.  The Cozy was a good airplane for them.    In the summer, fully loaded and gassed with me and my wife, the takeoff roll can get long.   The EZ was better because the pax sits at about the CG.  An EZ with O-320 would work if you sit in one and find it comfortable.   (With Keto dieting, I am down to 227 today which is a better fit     🙂    )
