Long-EZ Build Log

For the airworthiness certification of an experimental, amateur-built aircraft, the FAA requires that the builder keep a log of the building process in order to prove that “the major portion of which has been fabricated and assembled by person(s) who undertook the construction project solely for their own education or recreation.” This blog will serve that purpose. To make it easier to follow the project, this page organizes the work on different chapters chronologically.



Chapter 3 — Education

Chapter 4 — Fuselage bulkheads

    Workshop Setup


    1. Hi Patrik,

      I found your blog by searching around for Long EZ construction projects that are underway. If you don’t mind me asking, what are you using for plans? Do you have an original set of plans or are you using the TERF CD/Open EZ templates/something else entirely?


    2. How accurately do the OpenEZ templates line up against the original templates? Do you think the Open EZ templates along with the TERF manuals would make a workable substitute for an authentic plan set?
