    The Long-EZ was modern, high performance, custom built long range aircraft featuring the latest advances in aerodynamics and structure to provide good utility, economy, comfort, simplicity and flight safety. The aircraft uses one of two proven certified aircraft engines, the Continental O-200 (100 hp) and the Lycoming O-235 (115 hp). It has an alternator powered electrical system and can be equipped with an electric engine starter.

    Its cockpit layout is designed to compliment pilot work load with throttle, mixture, carb heat, pitch trim and landing controls on the left side console and a side stick controller on the right console. Seating provides correct armrest, lumbar, thigh and headrest support allowing "recliner chair" comfort not found in conventional aircraft seats. This allows long, fatigue free flights. The inboard portion of the large wing strakes are used as baggage areas accessible from the front and rear cockpit.

      I purchased this in game and was very disappointed. I'd have given the plane 4 stars except the canopy is so scratched and filthy that it is almost unusable at dawn and makes in-cockpit sightseeing a waste of time. A pity because the line of sight from the cockpit is spectacular. The aircraft's creators might live/fly in a pig pen, that's up to them, but don't ruin a delightful plane by making it so "realistic". The real world has window cleaner!

      PLEASE update this otherwise fun aircraft with a canopy we can live with! I'll give you 4 stars and a cookie!
