Below is a link to a story I wrote about the specific skills builders learn at colleges. Read it and decide if you would rather learn these things slowly at home, or head to the college and have me teach them to you personally in one weekend. You can do it either way, but I an assure you that it changes the way you see yourself, from mere owner to builder and master of your Corvair engine to know these skills. It is hard to make an argument against learning them sooner rather than later.

Below is a link to my story about the “Cherry Grove Trophy”, which we present to the outstanding Corvair Aviator of the year each November. In 20 days there will be a new name on the Trophy, and a fresh presentation made at Saturday night’s dinner.  In other branches of aviation, the awards often go to the guy that wrote the biggest check or had the most political influence. In the land of Corvairs, we are not polluted by corruption like that. Our Trophy goes directly to the individual that set an outstanding example and gave back to others now building. Barnwell is the setting where you can meet these builders in person and understand that your place is beside them, In the Arena. Reading a membership magazine featuring aircraft no working man can afford, written by editors who would consign and condem you to be only a spectator is the antithesis of this. Read this story, contrast it to most industry magazines, and then decide for yourself: Spectator or Man in the Arena?

Blast from the past, CC#19, Barnwell, 2010.  Builder Jeff Cochran stands with his running Corvair. Today this engine is flying in his Zenith 750.  He is planning on flying it back to Barnwell for CC#27. Progress is made by deciding that the time has come to advance your own dreams. You must choose this, it doesn’t happen without your personal action. If I am ever going to write your story about flying your plane, you must take action to start this.

” (2010)- Zenith 750 builder Jeff Cochran of Alabama supervises the run-in of his 2850cc Corvair, above.  The Zenith 750 is a large airplane capable of climbing at very low  airspeeds. This combination makes it brutally unforgiving on engines with inadequate cooling or light duty construction. The Corvair’s outstanding cooling and high quality  components make it impervious to installations that are the undoing of lighter engines.”
