First engine run at Corvair Finishing School #2 goes to the Swann family, Bearhawk LSA builders. Their engine is a perfect 3,000 cc Corvair featuring nearly every option in the FlyCorvair / SPA-Panther catalog. It laid down a perfect 30 minute break in run just after dinner on day one of the school.
A very proud moment after the run.
Hats off to the Swanns, now proven motor heads in homebuilding, an arena where most people settle to know next to nothing about the engine they fly behind. Conversely, they are masters of their power plant.

So, now the idea is to do certain work at the colleges, then go to a “finishing” school for final adjustment and run-in?
