Brand New 250 page 2014 Manual- Done

Builders,

I went to the print shop yesterday and picked up boxes of our new manual. This is a very large, entirely new Corvair Conversion manual I have been working on for 18 months.

It is based on the new numbering system that we introduced last year, It is much better organized than our previous manual. It has twice the page count, but it has a more compact font and smaller margins, yielding 3.5 times the content of the last manual, The word count is now 103,500. Every photo has a detailed caption, much of the book is in color, it has greatly expanded sections on installations and includes checklists and operations data.

Grace has delayed mailing new manual orders that have come in recently to wait for this. If you bought a manual in the last 90 days we will get you a new one after Oshkosh for reduced cost. If you hold an older manual and would like to upgrade, just send us an email with “Manual upgrade” in the subject line and the number from the cover of your original manual please include your mailing address.  After Oshkosh we will send you a note about the cost of the upgrade before we ship it to you.

New Builders can directly go to the manual link on our products page: http://www.flycorvair.com/manual.html to order their manual. We have raised the price to $69, from the $59 cost that we had on the last manual for 10 years.- ww.

 

 

On the road to Brodhead and Oshkosh 2014

Builders,

We are leaving to head north today. We will be at Brodhead WI late Friday and all day Saturday the 26th. The first day of Oshkosh is the 28th. The Last day is Sunday August 3rd.

 We will be there in booth 616 in the North aircraft display area (where all homebuilt companies are) Right where we were the last several years.

Answers to common Oshkosh questions: 21 Days to Oshkosh 2014

—————————————————

After Oshkosh we are detouring to NJ to visit with my Parents on the way back to Florida. I expect to be in NJ by August 6th, and back in the workshop in Florida by the 15th. That will give us 30 days to prep for Corvair College #30.

————————————————————

While we are gone, It is almost certain that the shop answering machine on 904-529-0006 will fill up. As a much better alternative, please use our email: WilliamTCA@aol.com as a phone message location. Simply put “Phone Message” in the subject box and we will call you back from the road. Please include your phone number and a good time to call you. We will be swamped at Oshkosh, but I have a chance to return many calls while at my parents home.

————————————————————–

If you are planning on attending Corvair Colleges #30 or #31, please sign up before Oshkosh starts. Both of these events are more than half full, and in a few days at Oshkosh I expect that they will fill up. We have limited space in MO for #30, which restricts us to 70 builders. #31 at Barnwell can take 90 people, but that is also getting full. For  sign up info read this: Corvair College #30 and #31 sign up now open

We hope to see as many of you as possible in the next few weeks. -ww.
