Long-EZ Aircraft donation to increase teaching, learning options

Walter Grantz’ passion for flying led him to building his own Long-EZ aircraft — a tandem two-seater with a swept main wing with root leading-edge strakes and winglets, foam-fiberglass sandwich composite structure and a “canard” front wing that makes the plane stall resistant. Powered by a Lycoming O-235 engine, he completed the aircraft in 1991.
