FlyCorvair Parts and Info at Sun n Fun 2016.


I have been at the last 28 consecutive Sun n Funs, but this year I will break the streak, because I will be on the road for the three western Corvair Colleges. For builders headed to Sun n Fun from April 5th -10th, Dan and Rachel Weseman and the SPA/Panther crew will be there, and they will have all of our parts, (and their own Corvair stuff) for sale.


Keep in mind that our sales and distribution are now covered by Dan and Rachel. (read the story here: Outlook 2016, New order page and distribution method. ) It has been in place for 60 days, and it is working exceptionally well, and the arrangement allows me to focus on making parts and teaching builders, the two elements I do best.  The arrangement also allows parts to be purchased and shipped the whole time I am on the road (Read College and Western Tour update,  and  College and western tour update #2 )


You can study all of our available products at this link: . If you have any question on the availability of an item, feel free to use the contact info or call SPA directly at 904-626-7777.




Blast from the past, Sun n Fun 20 years ago.  My Pietenpol and from L to R, Gus Warren, Steve Upson and  a young version of me.  The EAA’s Mary Jones took the picture the last hour of the show.


It had been a long, fun week. If we look a little rough, it was from spending the previous night at the ultra-light party where the legendary  Chuck Slusarczyk was serving his “Muzzle Loader” moonshine.  People said it was made with Acetone and Skydrol, but in reality. it just tasted that way.  It was served in coffee mugs because it ate right through Styrofoam cups.


The 1990’s ultra-light parties were simple fun with bands and beer and friends,  events a little too ‘colorful’ to fit into major airshows today.

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.
