Project Update

Hi Guys,

Over the last couple of months I have been slowly hauling my Long-EZ project down to eastern shore of North Carolina, where I will be moving to within the next 2-3 months (say, late September to mid-October).

Just this past week I hauled the left wing down to NC along with a myriad of components, including the majority of the panel avionics/instruments.  The only thing of note left in Virginia, besides what’s left of the panel mockup,  is the canard, which I will of course haul down to NC on my next trip in September (I want to make a protective wood crate for it).

Conversely, I am now working full tilt on updating and prepping my house for sale.  That said, my Long-EZ build is officially on hold for a good few weeks at a minimum, and again possibly up to a couple months.  Still, I’ll reiterate that I will make every effort possible to minimize build downtime during this transition.
