Above, Randy Bush of TN stands beside his 3,000cc Cleanex at Oshkosh 2017. It was parked in the Corvair power row directly behind my booth in the North Aircraft display area.
This is Randy's second Corvair powered plane. His Pietenpol now has 725 hours on it, and his Cleanex, new this year, has about 60. It is a reflection of the long proven installation that the plane had no issues in phase one testing, and is a fully reliable aircraft for cross country work with 60 hours on the Hobbs. The term 'alternative engine' doesn't historically have that kind of reputation, because too many people promoting them were selling untested imported junk and half baked ideas without merit.
Conversely, I was educated at the finest aeronautical university, and my goal has always been to emulate the success of Lycoming and Continental in a more affordable and accessible format. In the 28 years since starting this I have seen countless companies offering "New and exciting " come and go, but I have never wavered from my faith in "old and proven" . If it is your desire to understand and master a power plant that will reliably take your plane to destinations far and wide over hundreds of hours, we have an engine program for you.

Great looking plane. This motivates me to get out to the shed.
