In 24 hours we will be closing the registration for Corvair College #26 in Mexico MO. This event is being held at the Zenith factory just before their open house next month. We are now just 20 days away from the start of the College. Below is an excerpt from our previous story on the College registration. We are looking forward to meeting many friends there, both old and new. Please note that this College is free, but registration is required. Everyone signed up will receive further detail updates as we close in on the event. The registration link is at the bottom of the notes below. We are going to close it at the end of the day on Friday, August 30th.-ww.
Corvair College #26 will be in Mexico MO, at the Zenith factory, September 18-20, Just before September Open House, so that builders can take in both events. We will have several Corvair powered Zeniths on hand. Note that Sebastien welcomes all builders, not just Zenith builders. I have already contacted Mark from Falcon, and he will be on hand, and we will have good number of builders from previous colleges at this event. The 48 hour nature of the event means that it will be fast paced, but this will be a full College with engine tear downs, assembly and test runs. In addition we have a number of Corvair powered planes planning on being on hand. You do not have to own a Corvair engine to attend the event. If you are just seriously thinking about the Corvair, I encourage you to attend and learn more. Colleges are excellent settings to learn more details and evaluate the engine’s advantages for your project.
There is no registration fee for this College. The simple reason for this is because we will have the builders on hand source their own food and beverages. At other Colleges, the fee goes to providing the food and drinks. In Mexico, we have elected to bypass this and focus on the mechanical side of the event. This also allows some flexibility on builders’ arrival times at the event. We are encouraging all the builders at the College to plan on staying for the Zenith open house on Friday and Saturday. I am opening this registration before we head to Oshkosh to give regular readers a chance to sign up early. I am going to cap the total at 60 builders, and I expect this to fill up before the end of Oshkosh. Please note that while there is no fee, registration is required, and I do have to know you are coming in advance. I will be glad to speak with every single person on hand at the open house on Saturday, Technical planning, safety supervision and space limitations require us to have a finite limit on attendance. If you are planning on attending take action today. Here is the link:
