Default Todd's Canopies is here

Hello Builders,
Let me introduce my company to those who haven't heard of it.
I manufacture canopies for 30 different types of experimental aircraft including the Varieze, LongEZ, Cozy, Defiant and Berkut.

I specialize in custom canopies for one of a kind aircraft.

I plan on checking this forum regularly. If you have any questions about canopies, please ask.

Todd,


It's good to have you on the forum. In another thread, several people are considering widening the Cozy by 3". This in turn would need a custom canopy. How much more does a custom canopy cost? I'm not asking for an exact price or anything, just a ball park.

Thanks

Default Custom Canopy

Drew,

The turtleback I made per the M-drawings I recieved is 35 3/4 inches wide at the bottom front. Do you want a canopy that will fit a turtleback 3 inches wider at the same location? No problem.

Cost? The same as the standard Cozy canopy Check out my website. www.toddscanopies.com

Thanks,
Todd

That's what I like to hear. That must be why everyone recommends you. I'm still a couple years away, but it's always good to think ahead.

Thanks

Default Vendor Information

I've been comunicating with Todd Silver of Todd's Canopies for a couple of years now, and recently had the pleasure of puchasing one of his canopies.

Mine was a moderately custom job, as I've modified my canopy by adding 2" to the width and 1.75" to the height.

To make a long story short, he was able to make me the exact canopy I needed. He's one of the most accommodating vendors I've dealt with to date. Todd's main focus is getting the customer EXACTLY what they need in a timely fashion. IMHO, he won't let anything out of his shop that isn't 100% perfect.

When shopping for a canopy, Todd's Canopies deserves your serious consideration.

I asked on the Cozy website forum how the tinted canopy was for night flying. I got one reply from Carl Denk. He says he's 65 and has no problem seeing through it at night. Any other constructive comments would be appreciated.
