First engine of College #38


Below is the running 2700 cc Corvair of Jim Boyer, destined to power his Piet. It was the first engine to run at college #38.

Above, the quality sport  planes hangar in Cloverdale  CA, they are Zeniths west coast dealer . This is the third college we have held there. 2016 marks our 13th year of working with the Heintz family, we have held 7 Colleges at their shops, participated in more than ten open houses, and displayed planes in their booth at both Oshkosh and Sun n Fun since 2004. Over the years more than 100 Corvair powered Zeniths have flown, and we have about twice that number of active builders who are learning to be experts on their own engines, progressing toward their own day in the sun .






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.
