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.




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.
