Corvair College Face Book Page, and other info sources.

Builders,

For the last several years we have had a “Corvair College” Face book page. It is a public page, you don’t need a FaceBook page of your own to read it and follow it. Originally it was made by Shelley Tumino to support the work she does as our Corvair College on line sign up administrator. Over time Shelley expanded it as a news site for Corvair powered planes and their builders.

.

Because of the expanding popularity of the site, I am now going to link it directly to this blog and I have also asked Rachel Weseman from SPA/Panther to also share her Corvair/Panther and Corvair support stuff there also. This will greatly boost the content on the Corvair College FB page while keeping the ‘all Corvair’ theme.

.

While the stories that Rachel, Shelley and myself post to the page are available from our regular sources, the one thing that is good about having it on the Corvair College FB page is that we can easily share links to the individual FB pages of Corvair builders and flyers, so everyone can see them without having to have a FB page of their own or already be ‘friends’ with that person on FB. There are also a number of events like the Zenith open House and the Deland aviation Showcase (which have their own Face Book pages) which should  directly appeal to Corvair builders and we can get them all in one place on the Corvair College Face book page.

.

I have my own Face Book Page, but I intend to kill it shortly. I understand why many people like their personal FB pages and enjoy sharing with friends, but it really isn’t for me . I am a bigger fan of people in person than on line, and truthfully, I have only 2 friends from before I was 26 that I every correspond with anyway. The ‘friends’ I have on my page are really 98% from aviation anyway, and they can all move over to the Corvair College Face Book Page.  If you were one of the scores of people who I failed to respond to a FB Friend request, I apologize, I intended to move to the Corvair College page a long time ago and not have a personal page.

Above, Shelley Tumino, Co-host of Corvair Colleges #22, 28, 32 and 36, stands in front of the tear drop trailer she hand crafted.  The picture was taken at the 2015 Pietenpol gathering at Brodhead WI. Nearly everything in the picture was packed into the trailer for the trip from Texas. The woman is seriously into organization, logistics and deployment. Shelley had a long career in the Armed Forces.  Shelley takes having fun and camping more seriously than some countries take mobilizing for conflicts.

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 www.FlyCorvair.com and in more than 50 magazine articles.
