New Corvair News Sources.

Builders,

With the help of Phil Maxson, I have started a new Face Book page just for builders who are working with our Corvair flight engines to share stories pictures and videos. It is titled “WW Flycorvair”.  You don’t have to be on Face Book to read it, you can just directly get there with this link:

For the last several years we have used a Face Book Page “Corvair College” to post things on, and it’s still there for the time being, But I wanted to switch to a Face Book page with the same name as our Youtube channel. We first tried renaming the page, but this was repeatedly blocked by Face Book with a zeal appropriate for preventing nuclear war.  Youtube has it’s own Channel rules which only make sense to the PC warriors at their HQ in California, I follow them, but I protect my sanity by not trying to make sense of them. This is the YouTube channel:

Anyone can read the new Face Book page, but to comment on it, you need to join the group. This isn’t a big deal, just click on the link, if you choose.

.

Now, the bigger picture: I have posted about 10 stories on the Face Book page, and in their description or in the comments, I have included links to applicable technical stories on my blog: http://flycorvair.net or from our Youtube channel.  This is a partial demonstration of where we are going with with information this fall.

.

Flycorvair.com is best understood as my store of products and my historical library;

Flycorvair.net is my collection of 1,200 technical stories written in the last 8 years.

WW Flycorvair, the Face Book page will function as your 24 hour news channel

and WW Flycorvair the Youtube channel with be the video arm to support the mission.

.

The last link of the project you can directly help with: I have to reach 1,000 subscribers on the Youtube channel before they will allow us to direct put hyperlinks  into the descriptions of the videos. If you have not yet done so, please subscribe. When we reach the threshold, I will then be able to directly link all the applicable stories on Flycorvair.net to each of the new youtube videos as we upload them. This will make it far easier to any builder to access the in depth technical background of each subject he has just seen in a video. It is a goal I’d like to reach in the next 60 days. As I write this, we already have 760 subscribers, but we still need you.

.

Thank You, WW.

Above, the introductory video for my Youtube Channel. Builders love the videos, but a fair number of people have said the background music wasn’t soothing. When Ken Pavlou and I set the channel up, we were at a bit of a loss on what to use, because the   fascist copywrite police at Youtube will close your channel if you use even a snippet of any known song. The solution was at out fingertips: I had a 2004 CD of a band named Hercoma, and we chose the first song. I knew it would be ok, as it is the work of Ron the Drummer. 

 

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 www.FlyCorvair.com and in more than 50 magazine articles.

    I hate to say this but I clicked on the link and it took me to a login page with no option to use their no login version (they blank the lower half of the screen to make it difficult to view the page). Facebook might be the rage with the younger generations but I will have nothing to do with it except to read pages that do not require a login. I did try a couple of times but always got the same result.
