FlyCorvair.net passes 750,000 page reads.

Builders,

Yesterday, this site, which has been running for 36 months, passed 750,000 page reads. While this isn’t giant, it is a good indication of the popularity of the Corvair and our work with it, and a sign that this can be a trusted source of information, insight and maybe a little humor..

.

It is interesting to look at the growth in traffic: At the end of 12 months we had 124,500 page reads; the next 12 months was 233,800 and the last 12 months have been 392,250. That is a solid trend in the right direction to assure new builders they are joining a growing movement.

.

Right now there are 630 published stories on this site. I have another 154 drafts on a variety of  aviation subjects. I am always open to suggestions on topics. For a categorized look at 30% of the published stories look at this:  200 Stories of aircraft building

Blast from the past, Corvair College #9, November 2005

“Above, I stand with Pat Green of Jacksonville, Fla. Pat started his plane in 1967, and first flew it in 1977. Since then he’s logged about a thousand hours in it. Again, the Golden Rule in action. In my hand I’m holding a photo of Pat and I standing in exactly the same positions in my old hangar eight years earlier (1997). We had a laugh, because I pointed out Pat was wearing the same hat, and he commented that it looked like I was wearing the same shirt. Pat is good company, and a sharp observer of human behavior. When he talks, I listen because he’s a man of many experiences in life. Among them is having known Bernard Pietenpol personally.”

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

  2. My little video of the Corvair College in Barnwell has received ~500 hits in the month that it has been on You Tube. Seems there is a lot of interest in Corvair power lately. Not only is it economical to build … it is a stout and reliable engine that cools very well and makes good, reliable power.

    I trust that we all are helping to get the word out about just how good the Corvair engine is when properly converted and maintained.
