UPDATE 10/3 11am : I have just spoken with 601/Corvair pilot Ken Pavlou, who takes care of the on line sign up for the colleges, and requested that he cut off the sign up on Tuesday 10/7 at 9pm EST. Ken told me that the sign up had picked up 10 more builders in the last 24 hours, and we were now at 84, and if it stayed at this pace we would be over the physical size limit for the College by Sunday AM. so, if you are planning on heading to the college, please sign in now, as we may actually reach the limit before Tuesday.-ww.

Builders,

We are getting close to cutting off the sign up for College #31, we are just 35 days away from the opening.Corvair College #31 will be in Barnwell South Carolina, November 7th -9th. I have spoken with a number of the pilots flying in, and we will have a good cross section of flying planes, many engines going all the way from cases through running on the stand, and we will present the 2014 Cherry Grove trophy. Barnwell is run with great style and attention to detail by PF Beck and his excellent crew. The event is very spouse and family friendly, and it is the most up-scale an civilized College on the calendar. If you are considering bringing a better half to a college, make it Barnwell.  Don’t miss it.

Above, CC #24; Irv Russell, left, gives a thumbs up after a demo flight in Phil Maxon’s 601. Irv is building a 650 but had never flown in either a 601 nor a 650. This was quickly taken care of at the college. Irv got a jump-start on building his own engine by picking up a closed case from us with a gen 2 Dan bearing already installed.

Above, Randy Bush built the last engine to run at Corvair College #19. It lit off at 6:10 p.m. Sunday a bit after dark. Today, his Pietenpol now has more than 600 hours on it. If you want to succeeded in homebuilding, make a plan, spend your time with positive people who know what they are doing, and take action. It is that simple. Read this 2013 story: Randy Bush’s Pietenpol hits 500 hours. -ww.

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 www.FlyCorvair.com and in more than 50 magazine articles.
