To fill in the blanks, I am retired and living LArkspur ,CO. I went to work for McDonnell Douglas and Boeing as a test pilot after a 25 year career in the military, USMC. Loved the Long Eze when it came out and built N33X with first flight in 1987. N33X is a long nose O-320 powered chariot. LOL. Originally had an O-235, but got involved the RACE events and had the “need for speed” bug bite.
i was not flying for awhile due to cardiac issues the FAA didn’t like. Glad the rules have changed.
Currently building a Cozy MK4. I love flying, but I also really enjoy the satisfaction of building. My Cozy, I guess I will need a new name, is wider and longer since I prefer to not be quite as “cozy” as Nat made it. I have several inches and a few pounds on Nat, LOL.
Hope to meet many of you at events to come.
