Below are links to photo pages on all of the colleges we have held since #1 in the spring of 2000. This page is a work in progress, Because I still want to dig out some photos from the early events, San Antonio and the Canadian Corvair College in 2005, and put in pictures from #26 and #27. Looking at the photos, it is a lot of engine building and learning, all mixed in with a lot of fun and friends. At the bottom we have a list of the 2014 colleges.
Although I am the only person who has made it to every college, we have a number of builders who have been at 6, and even a handful who have made it to 10 or more. We have more than 25 people who’s first run happened on the stand at a college, who later flew the engine back in their plane. I look forward to reading comments from builders who have attended these events, it is a lot of good memories that I treasure.
Above, Tom Cummings of LA, on the left, stands with me in front of my Pietenpol at CC#1. The event was in May of 2000. Tom was the very first guy to show up at the very first College. Read the last page on the CC#17 link for a full story on Tom.

Couple Questions actually – are there any Corvair Colleges planned for Washington State? And, do you know if any KitFox’s flying with Corvair engines? Thanks!!
John, the last colleges we had in WA were 2009. I’ll be back at some point, I did one in Portland in 2016 There are 3 or 4 kitfoxes with Corvairs.
