Please allow me to introduce myself... CFI long EZ

Recommended Posts

To whom it may concern:

I may be purchasing a long ez and my insurance company is requiring a CFI check out. I’m an ATP/CFI-III with 4000 hours located in MA. 

 Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have seen insurance companies accept time in a Cozy with an experienced Cozy owner.  They are very similar and the dual controls are helpful.  Worth asking the insurance broker.  A vanilla CFI might not want to fly in the back of an EZ with no throttles or rudders.

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

RAFE has both a Cozy and a standard category dual-control tandem canard, the Gyroflug Speed Canard.  I trained the Speed Canard with Ryszard Zadow of RAFE before my first flight in my VariEze.  I was only a 350-hour pilot and transitioned without issue.
