Im going to be at Brodhead, the Pietenpol Gathering, just before Oshkosh. The BPA newsletter people will be offing copies of this manual to builders. I elected to do this as a contribution to the Piet newsletter and the Brodhead events. I will also have copies at Oshkosh, and after we return it is be a normal catalog item.

The humorous  part of my work: 

Pietenpol builders have a pretty active Facebook group, it isn’t very technical, but it is a way for that building community to share news. This said, it can have many of the same issues as other groups on the web.  When this new manual was first mentioned there, one guy made a comment that he felt I ‘withheld’ Pietenpol info from non-Corvair builders. A few days later another guy was saying that the manual was too long and no one needed such information. Kind of a contradiction, seems I can’t really be guilty of both at the same time.

I actually spoke to the guy who made the first comment on the phone for 30 minutes last week and everything is fine, just a poor choice of words. Second guy probably just likes attention. I’m guilty of this also but I try to earn it with something useful like this manual, not sarcastic comments about other peoples projects. As a builder, none of this matters to you, its all dumb drama. In a week we will be among friends having a good time up north, and I will be glad to speak with anyone in person about their Pietenpol’s W&B so they can build and fly a better plane.

  1. Thats is some good info William that can be applied to more than Piets. Thanks for getting it out there. I think info like that is much easier to absorb when you can see how it applies in the real world and not just theory.

  2. Thanks for taking the time to make up this manual. I’m not going to be able to make it to Brodhead or Oshkosh this year but I’ll be sure to order one when you have it available through you web site. Have fun at Oshkosh, still looking forward to an overnight in Jacksonville that will allow a visit. Say hi to Dan and Rachael for me.
