FlyCorvair Operations Plan, June-December, 2015


Here is a short series that gives a sharp look ahead, allowing our builders to plan their own path to achieving their goals in building and flying this year.





Above, The builders who flew their Corvair powered planes to CC##30/The Zenith open House at Mexico MO; Shane and Phylis McDaniels (2,700/650B, MO), Lynn Dingfelder, (2,700/601XLB, PA), Dave Gardea (2,700/650B, IN) Ron Lendon (2,850 /601XLB, MI) and Pat and Mary Hoyt (2,700/601XLB with 650 canopy, MN). 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. In the Corvair movement,  we have many good times ahead, just like this. Corvairs are not for everyone, but if our strengths serve your goals, follow this story and make a plan to advance your goals in the company of fellow traditional Homebuilders. For those willing to get their hands dirty while they learn to master their own power plant, your place in the Arena is ready.




Here is a four part series that will cover everything going on in the Corvair Movement in the next six months. The segments are in these groups:



Events: Oshkosh, Colleges #34 and #35, and possible New England and California tours.


Communications: The ZenVair and Pietvair discussion groups, better Email and Phone contacts


Production and sources: New parts coming, best sources for parts, lead times on items, etc


Overview of operations: A refined approach to serving builders,  what we will be doing in 2016, How this can serve your long term goals.


I am going to cover these topics over the next few days. Some of it , such as the College #34 sign up are already on this site, but I am going to gather it here, all in one place to allow better planning and make sure no builder misses what is on the horizon. Stay tuned.


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.
