This is a website dedicated to the building of my first homebuilt airplane.

Plans #1662

The Cozy Mark IV

The following is taken from the introduction in the owner’s manual.

The Cozy Mark IV is a compact, efficient, high-performance, high utility 4-place airplane.  It can accommodate a larger than average couple in the front, and an average size couple in the rear.  It features full dual controls and an expansive instrument panel.  While recommended for day-VFR operation, competent pilots can also equip it for night and IFR flying.  The recommended power plant is the 180 hp O-360 Lycoming, although the 160 hp O-320 and the 170 hp O-340 engines would also be suitable.
