Builders;

Here is a look at what is going on this month:

In a few days there will be the first ever Sport aviation showcase in Deland Florida. Dan and Rachel Weseman, will have the full commercial Panther display, as well as our Corvair stuff. There will be several Corvair powered birds there, and I am the featured speaker on the 4th. Plan on being there, you will not want to miss it. No sign up required. If there is a part you wish to pick up in person, please call Rachel to coordinate in advance 904-626-7777.  For more information read: Deland FL, “Sport Aviation Showcase” November 3-5

The following weekend, we are holding the Second Corvair Finishing school in Green Cove Springs at the Panther SPA shop. Please note: this does require signing up. As I write this I believe there are 2 more observer slots left. For up to the minute information, call Rachel at 904-626-7777. Read more here: Finishing School #2, Nov. 11-13, Florida.

Blast from the past, 2005:

February 14, 2005: Grace Ellen and I with Dr. Gary Ray and his Zenith 601XL project.   The plane has been flying now for almost a decade.  It has made pilgrimages to Oshkosh, the Zenith open house and to Corvair College #20. If your project looks like the picture above, know than many great hours of adventure await in your future.

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.

One Response to Corvair events on the calendar:

  1. Stuart Snow says:

    Its great to see so many positive things going on and coming up in the Corvair Movement.

    Totally off topic but here are some things actually heard at my recent EAA meetings:
    “Anybody know anyone who will work on a Rotax? The local certified Rotax guy wont touch mine since its attached to an experimental aircraft” My response, ” Put a Corvair and a Rotax side by side. The Covair is a thing of beauty you can actually work on. The Rotax has so many hoses wires and electronic do-dads attached I cant tell that its an engine and it looks like its on life support.”

    Also heard:

    “Can anyone give me a ride in their Romeo Victor? The large successful Romeo Victor plant in the NorthWest wont give me a demo flight unless I have a pilots logbook or commit to buying one”
    My response “Go to Mexico Missouri they will probably be glad to do a demo flight for you”

    Also I just got back from my local large experimental aviation event and the most interesting thing I saw were the antique tractors used to shuttle people around the event.

    Forgive my humor, I’m a recent gradate of the WW school of Charm. 🙂 and I’m always thankful for the Corvair path to success in aviation.
