We closed the deal on a VariEze and now the adventure begins! Obtained it from the original builder’s family who want to see it get back into the air. I am limited on space in our county rental hangar and will be selling our 67 C-150 to make room for our new fast mover. I am very humbled and grateful by the opportunity that the builder’s family has provided me regarding this VariEze.
N23RR has several updates such as LongEZ gear, new-er avionics (new when updated in 09), electronic ignition on one, mechanical mag on the other, overhauled prop with dynamic balance, B&C lightweight alternator, low time O-200 just to mention a few.
on the to-do list: CI, ADSB and Navigation lights, seat cushions and a possible Lithium battery update as well. Oh yeah, insurance and some additional flight training.
In the process of moving it from its old home to its new home. Not too bad since it is only about 45 miles away. Got to use our hitch extension that allows support from end to end on the wing and canard. Keeping it slow on back roads due to possible excessive lateral wind load on the vertical.
Thanks to all of you that I have talked to via email, IM and phone. More are coming.....😉
