Developer VSKYLABS has dropped some more information on their Rutan LongEZ project, one of their major releases for 2018.

In a post on their Facebook page, the developer gave information on their upcoming home-built performance aircraft for X-Plane 11. Built by aerospace legend Burt Rutan in the 1980’s, the aircraft features superb performance and economy through the use of the Continental O-200/115hp engine.

The aircraft promises to have ‘superb flight dynamics and authentic aircraft performance and handling characteristics’. It will also feature the ‘high performance rudder mod’ and ‘Roncz canard’ mod.

VSKYLABS expects the aircraft to be released by the end of April 2018. You can read the full details of what is included here.

Years ago I did PR for local airshows. One project included an air-to-air photo shoot of three

LongEZs flying in formation over New Hampshire. I was in the pax seat of a C172 shooting through an open window. Because we were so much slower, the three LongEZs lined up and flew towards us, a few hundred feet below. It was like Star Wars for real! An incredible day. Incredible aircraft!

Looks like an awesome rendition of an equally awesome little aeroplane.
