Default Intro

Hey folks! My name is Sam Staton, and I live in Jacksonville, FL. I am in the early planning stages of my 2nd LongEZ (first was stillborn in the '80s). Still trying to make decisions about widening the fuselage, engine type, etc. My daily flyer is a 1952 Piper TriPacer. Would love to get together with any canardians in North or Central Florida to see how you did it, chew the fat, etc.

Spend as little time on those decisions as possible, the widening can't wait, the engine can.

keep the build switch firmly in the on position

+1 on the build switch being set to On.

If you think that the fuselage might best be widened, do it now and get on with it.

Engines... Geez, the engine situation is fluid. My big comment is to plan for auto gas and jet fuel.
