In December 2017, our Chapter’s Cozy builder Scott Fish reached the milestone of completing all the major structural components through primer.

The Cozy MK IV is a canard pusher aircraft, designed by Nat Puffer/Burt Rutan. It follows the composite construction process of the Long EZ/VariEZ aircraft.

With the arrival of Scott’s sons from college, they were able to assemble all the completed parts in the driveway and get an interim weight and balance. The weather was cooperative and enabled a few pictures as well. Work continues (wings removed) in the garage this winter on the electrical system and initial engine fitting. With some luck finding a hanger this year to complete integration, Scott hopes to get a first flight by the end of 2018.
