Corvair College #34 sign up – Open now


We have just opened the on line sign up for Corvair College #34, September 15-17, Mexico Missouri, at the Zenith factory. If you are new to the Colleges, just about every question you may have has an answer that can be found at this link: Corvair College reference page, please take the time to review it. There is a lot of information there, but it also give a detailed, accurate picture of a learning and building experience that is far from the typical technical seminar.


Before going to the sign up page, several points to understand:


All builders of our style of Corvair Conversions are welcome, not just Zenith builders. Sebastien Heintz, president of Zenith, welcomes all homebuilders, not just his customers.


Sign up is required to attend. I insist that we know who is coming to the events, and that they receive all the pre event communications. The fee for the college covers every thing builders eat drink, the workspace, tooling etc. In 33 previous colleges, we have had more than 1,000 people find this an excellent value. Success in homebuilding has many factors, but commitment to learn, following directions and spending some money are always going to be required parts. Someone who does not wish to pay their share, and just wants to look, can come to my Oshkosh display #616 in the north area, across from the Zenith display. But, attending Colleges is different, one must sign up.


You do not need to have a motor to attend the College. Many people come to observe and learn, and they only get a motor after the College. We welcome anyone who is these to learn about how we build Corvair flight engines.


The event is focused on teaching all aspects of building, operating and flying Corvair flight engines as I have taught people to build them since 1989. We welcome anyone who comes to learn in a friendly environment. The builders at the college will assemble engines to our design with parts from our specified suppliers such as SPA/Panther, Falcon machine, J.S Weseman, Roy’s Garage, Clark’s, and ourselves. However, we do not offer support or assistance to builders who are stuck with the products of now bankrupt LLC’s like Aeromax, Aerolite, Magnificent Machine, or anything that was/is sold from Valdosta GA. The small fraction of builders who made the decision to work with those short lived companies should have no expectation I will support them. They have to live their decision. This is called responsibility and consequences, Ideas that still matter in the America I choose to live in.

The picture above captures all 5 aircraft on the ramp in front of the Zenith Factory at The Mexico MO airport. The builders are standing between myself on one end and Sebastien Heintz, president of Zenith Aircraft on the other. This was one of the moments that make years of work in the hangar a very good investment.

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.
