    Welcome! Are you already a pilot, do you have any particular kind of project in mind?

    Welcome Argen.

    I encourage you, and our other recent new participants, to provide information about yourself in your profile. That info often aids a post responder in understanding your question better, and, therefore, providing a better answer.

    To anwser your questions, Yep, I am a pilot (both professional and private) and I had plans to build a Pazmany PL-2B.

    Unfortunately Mr. Paznamy is longer with us and when I call the Pazmany Company, all I get is a voicemail that seems to be Mrs. Pazmany, but no one picks up the phone. I've tried Aircraft Spruce, but other than trying to sell me a set of canopy rails, they cannot help me either. So, after some thinking I have selfed the project and now I am trying to make up my mind what could be a possible project.

    With all the flying experience that I have gained, I have made a "Wish-list" about what (into my opion) should be included in this project. Doing so, I have created the problem that I cannot really find a design that includes all these features.

    Maybe not the most easy route to follow, but having said this, most homebuilders seldom take the easy road. That is why I find the world of homebuilding so fascinating.

    Ask your questions here. Canopy rails have been designed and used in Thorps, Pitts, RV, and countless others.

    I like the PL-2, even if it is complex to build.

    Hi BJC, I never had the chance to fly one, but I really like the design of the PL-2, Well designed aircraft with safety in mind and a nice performance.

    The canopy rails will not be a problem, however producing extruded wing spar's will be a challenge to me.

    I understand. I thought that they were built-up spars.

    "I had plans to build a Pazmany PL-2B."
    There was/may still be a Paz based build in the back of a hangar near me. May be for sale "For a good price."
    Of course, the price might not be so good if you are a long way from Florida, Arjen. And yet, the weather for the next couple of months may be better than where you are... :)

    Hi Percy, well, I've given the PL-2 project a rethink and the Paz you mention could be an interesting option.
    Do you have any information about that?
