Corvair College #32 is set for San Marcos Texas. 27 Feb – 1 Mar, The local hosts are Shelley Tumino and Kevin Purtee. The people who brought you CC#22 and CC#28 . This College is at the same location as CC #28. Sign up has now been active a month, and we are approaching 1/2 full. The event is now just 82 days away.
Near the end of Corvair College#22, we took a moment for Kevin, myself, Grace, Scoob E and Shelley to have a portrait with the tail of Kevin’s aircraft.
When you’re a badass like Kevin, any hat you wear is The Hat of Power.
Above, at Corvair College #24, we awarded The Cherry Grove Trophy to Pietenpol builders and flyers Kevin and his very supportive better half Shelley Their frequent appearances at airshows far from Texas, their constant promotion of ‘learn build and fly’ and the hosting of the highly successful Corvair college #22 made them the right people to be awarded the trophy in 2012. They work as a team, and it was appropriate to award it to both of them. Kevin’s frank discussions of the effort required to achieve something of real lasting value in personal flight reach many builders. Their ‘lead by personal example’ philosophy has shown a great number of builders a path to success. -ww
For a good read on Kevin’s personal perspective on homebuilding, read his story at this link:
A while back we asked anyone who wished to upgrade to the new manual to send in their address. We sent out a notice of the reduced price of manual for upgrades, and then sent out a large number of manuals, to all the addresses we received.
We understand when things fall through the cracks every now and then, but it has caught my attention that nearly 50% of the builders we sent the manual to did not get around to returning the registration page nor the payment. If you are one of the builders who didn’t have a chance to take care of this, I thank you in advance for doing so now. -ww,

Blast from the Past, Oshkosh 2003:
Gentleman aviator Marv Hoppenworth with William Wynne.
“One happy meeting that sums up the whole experience was recognizing and meeting Jay’s Hoppenworth’s father, Marv . At Brodhead, Jay had shared pictures and stories of his parents, who had met and gone flying in an L-4 on one of their first dates. A few days after Brodhead, we met the man himself at Oshkosh. Marv is truly old school EAA, and it was an honor and pleasure to meet the father who was so obviously his son’s hero.”
