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.

What was transitioning from a conventional wing to the canard ez like?  Was this difficult to get used too and does your plane fly pretty well hands off?

Hello,
Transition was pretty simple. The planes are extremely stable and easy to land but you need hard runway and fairly long compared to a Cessna or Piper.
My insurance required 10 hours of transition training from a CFI familiar with the canard aircraft.
I have pitch and roll trim so the plane does fly hands off.
Feel free to let me know if you have any further questions.

You apparently have access to a CFI with EZ experience but isn't that rare, hard to find? Could one establish the 10 hours with a current standard private copilot?

Lynn Burks is a CFI that does transition training in the Longez. He is in Southern California.

He sold it. 

By the way, I keep track of canard experienced instructors for anyone in need. 

There are about 20 O-320 Long EZs, 33 O-235/O-290 Long EZs on my lists for sale.
