    Our EAA Chapter had a Long-EZ donated by a gentleman that has terminal cancer. Our job now is to sell it. I'm looking for some idea of its worth. From what we can glean, it hasn't been flown since 1988 or there about. Not entirely sure as to what engine is on it, but it has not been run either. Engine TT is over 2100 hours. Personally, I don't expect we can get much for it at all, just not sure what range it would be in.

    You're an EAA chapter. Turn it into a chapter project to get it flying again. Rebuild the engine.
    A LongEZ is not a complicated plane so I wouldn't think it should be an expensive proposition. Get some of the kids from the local school(s) involved.

    Then raffle it off and split the proceeds with a worthwhile charity and your Chapter.

    Not something we want to do right now. We already have an RV-12 that needs to be completed and three major projects our youth are working on. We just need to get rid of it.

    No comparables on controller or barnstormers?

    Is there an EZ owner's group that could help put a price on it?

    It's a project plane for sure which will adversely affect the value. I would take the core value of whatever engine it has and then add a nominal amount for the rest of the plane and see if you could sell it for that.

    If you can give me some details and more pictures I can post it to a canard group that may be able to help.

    Well without any details and the only pictures being a covered fuselage and some guys holding a wing, I’d say you’re going to have a hard time getting any valuation.

    I’m new here but see this as a project I could take on. Willing to make a donation, how much would you like for it? I’ll hook up a trailer and take it off your hands. Mike 575 590-1276

    Are you referring to the RV12?

    Im interested in the Long EZ that was donated, I understood you are looking to see it gone. Ebay may not be bad idea but if you have a fair price in mind maybe I could save you the trouble.
