January 23, 2014 - With last year's passing of Carl Unger (EAA #2515), Breezy co-designer and fixture of the AirVenture Oshkosh flightline, there was concern over the status of Breezy plans. Would the iconic aircraft, so closely aligned with the EAA homebuilt movement still be available? It is not uncommon for the availability of plans to become an issue after the passing of a long time designer.
We are pleased to report that that is NOT the case with the Breezy. Carl's son, Rob Unger, EAA 585561, has picked up right where his dad left off. Rob is also an EAA member fully committed to keeping the Breezy plans available for future generations of EAA members to enjoy building. Believe it or not, 2014 is the 50th anniversary of Breezy! This summer, at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, we're working with Rob to celebrate the golden anniversary of the Breezy design.
We encourage anyone with a flying Breezy to join us at Oshkosh. A dozen owners have already committed their aircraft to the event! For more information on the celebration, Rob has set up a Breezy page on Facebook. For more information on the plans or the Breezy 50th Celebration you can contact Rob Unger via e-mail.
