How long does it take to build a Cozy?
Building a Cozy from plans takes for a good worker approximately 2,500 hours.
How much does it cost?
At current prices about $18,000 to build the airframe. This includes purchasing some pre-fab parts which would be difficult for an unskilled builder to make himself, such as cowlings, canopy, landing gear struts, engine mount, manual or electric nose-gear retract mechanism, and other parts which require machining or welding. It does not include the cost of an engine, or expensive instruments and avionics.
What engines are approved?
The Cozy Mark IV was designed around the 180 hp Lycoming engine. Lycoming engines from 160 hp to 200 hp are suitable. We have evaluated the 6-cylinder 200 hp Franklin engine.
