2019 Midwest tour video

Builders:

Your Sunday morning: You could either watch Meet the Press and see the same old talking heads rehash the same old alarmist arguments, or you can spend the same amount of time watching our 2019 midwest tour video.  I guarantee our video will put you in a better mood to get stuff done on your Airplane today.

.

.

The video above is the work of Ken Pavlou, aka “Kamal Mustafa” . He put nearly 18 hours of editing into it. So if you are tempted to turn the sound off to avoid hearing my low caffeine induced speech impediment of connecting all the sentences with the phrase “and-uh” , just imagine how Ken’s brain has been damaged by editing this for you. A human sacrifice on behalf of advancing the world of Corvairs.

Something Funny- Oshkosh 2019

Builders,

Here is something funny from Oshkosh 2019. I am making fun of the square edge of top of Randy Bush’s Pietenpol cowling; this is done in jest, as I love Randy and he knows it, he is the person laughing in the background.

.

.

Randy is part of our Oshkosh crew every year. There is no explanation for it, but some some reason Ken Pavlou, nick named him “Pot Roast”, and the name has stuck ever since.

.

If you want to read more about Randy, get a look at these stories:

New – M.O.P. Manual, a required technical document.

Builders,

Below is a quick look and a video introduction to our new “Maintenance, Operations and Procedures manual

.

.

Above, the cover: If you ar building or flying a Corvair powered plane, you need to own one of these. It is made up from data pulled together from my experience and that of Dan Weseman. Once or twice a month, we have a builder who calls us who has completely missed missed critical technical data we have previously presented in many formats. Here we have gathered critical information into a single, easily followed location. This is thousands of hours of testing, hundreds of hours writing, and all we ask of builders is to spend one hour reading it, and keep it on hand at all times, and follow it.

.

.

Above, a look at the table of contents.
