looking to buy an EZ soon but have questions.
« on: April 20, 2010, 04:58:47 PM »
Hello i'm looking for general info about the long ez aircraft and have many questions about the plane.  I have about 140 hours and very much want to buy one for me and my wife for traveling, if there is anyone that would help me out I would apperciate it.  I there is anyone that could possibly take me up in one that would be a dream come true, i would be happy to fill your tanks. I have read about these aircraft for sometime now.
thank you

Hi Chris

Someone can give you a ride.   But we need to know where you live, then we can
find someone.

Be very cautious about buying; you need a lot of input from those who are experienced
builders and/or engineers.

Hello Bruce,
Thank you for replying.

I live in Riverside CA, I have been wanting to buy one of these for
about 15 years and now able here soon. I would like to talk to anyone
that has alot of experience in them and hopefully take a ride.
I would be happy to pay for gas and lunch just to talk.

Hi Chris,
I can give you a ride.  I live in Oregon, but use my Long for traveling to Corona AJO frequently for work.  Why don't you email me and we can set it up.

Hi Chris

Steve is a great guy and will give you a ride.   But you should be aware
that there are many guys living in S. CA.   They are often at Chino on
weekends.   Call Bill Davenport in Los Angeles (310-398-5540) or Greg Gullikson
in Fullerton (714-624-5635) or Doug Pitzer in Corona (909-735-4485) for
more information.

Hi Chris

Here is more info:  Go to the home for www.ez.org and look to the right, top.
Click on the CSA tab.   You can get a lot of help from Terry Schubert and
the CSA guys by spending $30.   That will get you a directory that lists 95
builders, flyers, and wanta-bees in CA.   There ARE some flyers who are
not in the CSA but not many.

You can also call the CA representative for CSA, David Orr.  949-939-1479
Tell him I sent you.  Most likely he will give you a ride (I think his aircraft is
at John Wayne airport).   David also keeps track of all available canard
aircraft and charges a fee for that info.   I think the info is worth the fee.
David also publishes a free monthly email.   That will tell you about upcoming
flyins, among other things.   The Columbia, CA flyin is coming soon.
