One week until Corvair College #39


A week from today, we will be on the way to Corvair College #39 in Barnwell South Carolina. The sign up has been long closed, but you can read about coming events in this story:2017 Corvair Events.


College #39 will be our Eighth College in Barnwell. These are the ‘flagship’ colleges, made possible by the outstanding efforts of P.F. Beck and his crew of volunteers at the Barnwell airport. To appreciate the kind of class show they operate, understand that the EAA sent a full film crew to document College #27 at Barnwell, because they thought it was one of the best examples of grass roots homebuilding in the country. See the film here: New EAA video on Corvair College#27, Barnwell 2013.



Above: Work for today; A table full of starters being converted to 2400-L Starters, and a stack of new oil pickups which will be modified into oil pan installation kits :( 10 days from now these parts will be headed home with builders, bolted on their Corvair engines which ran at Corvair College #39.




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.
