wildkiwi replied to wildkiwi's topic in Coffee HouseWe're obviously all on the same page there mate. As it stands in a LongEZ it would be a 6 hour flight to work and the company would reimburse me for more than double the cost of fuel. With all the BS the other day it was a 13 hour day for me to return home via commercial airline.
wildkiwi posted a topic in Coffee HouseHaving not really flown an airplane before (with exception of very limited hands on controls in straight-n-level flight), is purchasing an existing LongEZ and obtaining lessons from an experienced Ez pilot a viable option? I do have in excess of 4000 hours Rotor-wing, the majority being MD500 and a bit in the R22. I'm seeking a quick and affordable way of transiting between regional airports without relying on commercial airlines. Your thoughts / opinions on the LongEz as an initial training aircraft would be appreciated?
