Article by Chris van Hoof – 26 July 2008
This article is not about setting a record, but rather about the satisfaction of testing the actual service ceiling of my particular Amateur Built Aircraft a Cozy Mark IV ZU-CZZ.
Some data to get you going:
The current World Record for a Canard Type aircraft was set by Jim Price at 35,027′ and is held in the C1a class. For my Cozy, due to its weight, C1b: 500 Kg < 1000 Kg. See: SAPFA and FAI websites for the various weight categories.
How to go about this sort of event?
