OWNER: Allen Floyd
Allen brought his partially completed Long-EZ airframe to us because he wanted help to get the most of his Long-EZ project.
The aircraft first flew in late 2015.
It is a highly modified airframe with low drag, lightweight Magnum engine Cowls and a pumped up Lycoming 360 turning a custom made 3 blade propeller from Craig Catto.. .
The engine Cooling baffles were specially designed and fabricated for optimum performance
The aircraft has a custom made canopy bubble installed in a special frame.
As a safety enhancement, the aircraft is fitted with a custom fabricated rollover structure
Allen chose and installed modern Grand Rapids Technology instrumentation.
While the initial flight testing is still underway as of January of 2016, it is easy to see that this aircraft is a real performer and is demonstrating the ability to easily cruise at over 200 kts true airspeed.
