Canard Builders Support
If you are looking for information from the Pilot's point of view, David Orr tries to support all the canard builders out there, whether Cozy, E-Racer, Long EZ, Varieze, Defiant, Quickie, Dragonfly. As part of that support he runs a club which was originally centered on the West Coast and he tries to track all the builders, no matter what they are building or how far along, for mutual support. New and would be builders of Cozy IV who come to Aircraft Spruce and don't know all of the active Canard clubs can contact David Orr to find the nearest building support, the nearest place to get a "Spirit Ride" in a similar plane and just about all around information that is current and interesting to builders and flyers. David Orr, of Squadron III, can be reached at 949-939-1479(Cell) or Canardfinder@att.net. There is also a good snail mail newsletter for active builders by Central States Association - contact Terry Schubert
These are our only approved suppliers! Our approval means that we chose them based upon their
reputation, and that they agreed to make parts (or supply materials) only to our specifications.
Unofficial Cozy Page
Marc Zeitlin, a Cozy builder of long standing, runs this web site on a voluntary basis. The mail list has over 400 members and generates dozens of messages on a dialy basis. Marc does not moderate or vet the mail list messages. As one builder put it, It's a great comfort to know that you can ask a complex question at 1 a.m. and have an answer from some guy in Australia before you wake up in the morning. Monitoring the mail list gives you the feeling you're part of the Cozy community.
Archives of past discussions are a tremendous resource for new builders. Some builders have also provided search engines for the archives. Prospective Cozy builders are permitted to join the Cozy mail list.
Canard Aviator's Page
This page holds information for all canard builders. Many Cozy builders monitor both the Unofficial Cozy mail list and the canard builder's list.
