Larry Jenkins, a man I owe a lot to.

Above, in our Oshkosh tent with Larry Jenkins.  In 1989, Larry was an instructor at Embry-Riddle, president of EAA chapter 288 (Daytona Beach) and a RV-6 builder. He went above and beyond to encourage students to become home builders, including inviting them to meetings and to his workshop. It took Larry’s extraordinary optimism to believe that a significant number of converts could be made. I can’t answer for other students, but speaking for myself, my path in aviation was illuminated by this man, and I remain most grateful for it.

A great moment in life: after 12 years of building, Lynn Knoll, flanked by his sons, brings his 2700 cc Corvair/Pietenpol to Oshkosh. In the forground, legendary EAA journalist Mary Jones gets their photo and story.
