LongEz for sale, completed through chapter 18 of 24. Main wings, electronics and engine need installation:

The aircraft was being built to start a non profit 501(C)(3) organization called Aerial Conservancy to assist in anti poaching efforts in Africa. See: https://www.facebook.com/aerialconservancy

Politics and corruption in Africa have made it impossible to pursue our Aerial Conservancy goals so we are selling the aircraft to fund a new non profit called Clean Oceans. see http://dreamgreen.org/clean-oceans

The Long-Ez design as it is an exceptional aircraft, designed by Burt Rutan. It holds over 100 world records. This includes an endurance record of officially 4800 miles non stop and also an altitude record maintaining 35 027 feet with a normally aspirated engine. 

It carries 52 gallons in standard tanks which provides about 2000 mile range and is capable of speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour!  For more info see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rutan_Long-EZ
