The Barnwell SC Crew that brought you nine Corvair Colleges.
Corvair College #43 was the ninth College we have held in Barnwell SC. Although we have had outstanding events, both big and small from coast to coast and even in Canada, there is no question the Crew at Barnwell have lead the way on Colleges and have established an unbeaten record of service and good times to an entire era of Corvair builders. That type of contribution to our branch of aviation is exactly what makes traditional light aviation a real brotherhood.
L-R, Brandon, Cal, P.F. and Tim. Brandon is the young guy with 2 of the 9 Colleges on his scorecard, but the trio of the old guard have been with us at all nine Colleges. More than a decade ago, P.F. flew his Pietenpol to Colleges 12 and 16, and suggested I come to Barnwell and see the airport and meet his crew. He was very confident he had just the location and people we needed. Now, a decade later, hundreds of builders have learned exactly why P.F. could speak with assurance for his team and his airport.
If you are one of the hundreds of builders who have beed a beneficiary of P.F and Crew’s hospitality and hard work, I really encourage you to share your gratitude in the comments section, its a mark of thanks they will appreciate.
