Video of Grandson’s first flight, 3,000cc Cleanex:


Dale Williams of SC sent in this link of his Grandson’s first flight:


It is a particularly good video, not of the plane, but capturing the day. If you are working in your shop this weekend and wondering if finishing your plane will be a milestone event in your life, look no further than this film and picture having this kind of day with someone in your own family.  Catch the credits at the end to learn who covered the soundtrack.


Dale sent these words with the link:

“One of the great joys I had recently was that of taking my seven year old grandson for his first ride in my Corvair powered Sonex. I’ve desired to do this for a number of years but waiting for him to be old enough, and me working to build and learn skills that I didn’t yet possess was all part of the process… Besides the satisfaction that comes to us personally from going where the timid fear to tread, there is the part of giving to others in the manner which you have demonstrated by your work, and also the giving to others by sharing what we have achieved, that brings us a greater fulfillment of purpose, – Dale, N 319WF”

About William Wynne
I have been continuously building, testing and flying Corvair engines since 1989. Information, parts and components that we developed and tested are now flying on several hundred Corvair powered aircraft. I earned a Bachelor of Science in Professional Aeronautics and an A&P license from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and have a proven 20 year track record of effectively teaching homebuilders how to create and fly their own Corvair powered planes. Much of this is chronicled at and in more than 50 magazine articles.
