For Sale/Wanted / Long EZ N104EZ for sale - new price point.
« on: January 20, 2016, 01:40:45 PM »
As we say, the only constant is change.
It is now time to get serious about selling my great Long EZ
When I posted this a couple of years ago I was asking $27,000.00 and actually had it sold for that when I decided to keep it.
Beagle says that price is still in the ball park but Bill (Duck) Oertel says that now $22,000.00 would be a proper price. Of course, I would look at reasonable offers. REASONABLE offers.
The plane is at Chino Airport and is hangared.

Plane built in 1999
Here are the specs as far as I know them.

Empty weight = 880#

Max weight = 1600# per the data book/ I wouldn't want to be that heavy.

Lycoming 0235 L2C - 118 HP

My cruise speed = 140 kts GPS speed over the ground at 7000 +/- feet

fuel burn 5.75-6 GPH. That # has held steady since I have owned the plane.

fuel: 26 gal per side = 52 gal total. I usually put 15-16 gal in each side which gives me 5 + hours of fuel landing with no less than 1 hour fuel on board. That is my personal minimum.

353.7 hours on top o/h.

Same hours on prop as far as I know.

The prop is a Bruce Tift wooden laminate.

I think that's about all I can answer. Simple plane, really. I have all the original plans and log books for the engine and airframe.

Here is a link to a SkyDrive folder which includes both photos from after I first purchased the plane and then later when I took my next door neighbor girl for a local flight. 
These show the instrument panel and other things, such as the windows in the back strake for the passenger.

Here is a link to a YouTube video which was taken by one of my business partners with his father in law, who is a pilot and owned a flight school in the Philippines. This video also includes some photo shots/ still pictures.
