Corvair College #36 report.


I present a one photo summary of Corvair College #36 in Austin TX.


This was the fourth Corvair College that Kevin Purtee and Shelley Tumino have hosted.  As builders have to expect, the College ran perfectly, everyone had a productive event, we ran plenty of engines, Several people brought in their Corvair powered planes, and a number of friendships were made or renewed.


As I write this I am headed west to California, for the prep work for Corvair College #37 in Chino, just 16 days away. I will post a few more pictures, but there is already a lot notes and photos from builders who attended the college on our Corvair College Facebook page:


(you don’t have to be a FB person to read it)





As Mr. Stuart said:” Every picture tells a story don’t it? “….. After hours on the last day of the college: L-R: Greg Crouchley, owns a Corvair powered Waiex and a Corvair powered Zenith 750. Has attended more than 12 Colleges, never works on his own stuff, only there to help and see friends. Kevin Purtee, Corvair powered Pietenpol, co-hosted 4 colleges, done countless tasks behind the scenes to assist other builders.  Earl Brown, Corvair Pietenpol builder and master craftsman, currently learning French so he can be the local host of Corvair College #58, slated for 2020 in Martinique. Dave Hoehn, Falconair builder from AZ. Dave’s 2,850 was the first engine to run at CC #36, but Dave has come early and stayed late at all of the Texas Colleges to assist Kevin and Shelley in putting on the best events possible. When people ask “what makes the Corvair a different engine?” the answer is simply we are the place in homebuilding where the original values of putting back a little more than you found, still lives and is flourishing. If you have not come across that sprit in your travels in homebuilding, change headings and meet some Corvair builders.



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.
