Many people in the Corvair world have met Mark Chouinard, he is a 6’5″ gentle giant, ( I say this aware of the comments on his FB page from his old infantry friends who offer great testimonials to his skills with belt-fed weapons ) who has attended a number of Colleges including #32 where his engine ran in a freezing rain storm, there is a great photo of it here: Last Call, Corvair College #40, Texas Sept. 31-Oct. 2..
Mark Shared the pictures below of his airplane as it is approaching completion. For a reminder of who Mark is, take a look at the photo in this link: Outlook 2016 – New Email address for Corvair Communications. It is Mark and myself at Oshkosh 5 years ago. If you look closely, you can see the dog sleeping in the trailer.
Many enjoyable days lay in the future of this plane. It is a reward that only traditional homebuilders will know. Your choice to be the master of both your airframe and your engine sets you apart from the major of homebuilders who approach building as a consumer experience. Their life, their choice, Your life, your choice.

Good looking airplane Mark. Nice job.
Getting close indeed! Since those photos I have nearly completed my engine cowling and a few other tasks. Really hoping to have the DAR out in October, but life will dictate as usual. Either way, I will press on. Definitely seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. A rewarding experience this far… can’t wait to see her fly.

Sorry Guy B. , we are restricted to the completely antiquated communication form of actually writing letters into words and forming sentences to express ideas. 🙂💙🙂💙🙂💙
