  1. OK, no worries on the Long-EZ. I am waiting for David to get back to me after he reviews the information he requested. Here is the link to the one I saw and spoke with the owner about. I figured you would have knowledge of the plane. https://www.aircraftdealer.com/dealers/d/donaldponciroli/69428/big_s.jpg I appreciate the links to the examination and the PDF. This information I will review and study to give me a better understanding of things. I understand that the sound pre-purchase inspection by someone who knows what they are doing and what to look for. Thank you again for your time, Trevor
  2. Thanks Marc, I am sorry for getting back to you so late. I just saw the notification that you replied. I have since turned on my notification settings in hopes to avoid this in the future. I reached out to Tim and then David yesterday, I answered David's questionnaire early this morning from work and emailed it back. I have know Tim for years as well as John Crocker, another Long-EZ guy at Placerville. I would be very interested in getting information on a solid Long-EZ. Will David have the information on the one you mentioned? I do have a COZY question for you. In my search for a good canard, I ran across a Cozy IV that has been for sale for about 5 years per the owner. I know my wife would prefer the Cozy for the extra room. What I am asking is, what are some key questions would someone need to ask to get an accurate idea on its condition. Due to my work schedule, I will need to plan a trip to see it in person. I honestly don't think I could have located one any further away in the US. Its located on the east coast. I am still very green regarding getting into the different groups and mailing lists. Is the mailing lists you mentioned on this forum or located at a different site? I will start looked for the ones you mentioned. Thank you again for your help, Trevor Anders
  3. Long time lurker, first time post, just wanted to to say hello and introduce myself to the forum. Don’t own a Longeze/Cozy......yet, but looking. Currently own a C-150 I use to drive to work. It’s slow, cheap and does the job but enough is enough. Been helping a good friend do some work on his long, logged some good flight hours and received some exceptional Long instruction. finally following my long dormant dream of owning a canard design. 19 years ago, was given a raw Dragonfly kit but the foam was is bad shape. I still have the plans and some other bits, but that’s about it. Renewing my EAA Membership and affiliation with EAA Chapter 512. Any pointers, ideas, suggestions would be appreciated. Also looking for a current master list of Canard Clubs or resources in the US so I can branch out my contacts and resources in my search and journey. posted a pic to show what it would look like if KPVF was actually in Australia
