Corvair College #10 Part 2

November 10-12, 2006

Also on hand was the great aircraft designer Ed Fisher. Our friend Ed holds the distinction of being the only guy ever to design, build and fly two Oshkosh Grand Champions: the Skylite and the Zipster. He's designed a dozen other light planes, which have been built by the score. He's best known to Corvair builders for his ongoing Sport Fleet project. Although from Ohio, Ed now operates a giant facility at the Sebring Airport in Florida. You can learn more about his work at RaceAirDesigns.com.

Joe Horton's beautiful KR-2S leads the lineup of Corvair powered planes outside our hangar.

Land-based Corvair aficionado Bob Bentz of Lakeland, Fla., showed up with a trailer full of very nice 95 and 110 cores. Bob has been a good friend and my major source of cores over the past five years. He upholds the supply is as plentiful as it's ever been. He keeps a few in stock, but out of area builders should know that Bob prefers not to ship them in favor of builders picking them up.

Three and a half hours of sleep and countless cups of coffee brought to me by well-meaning friends aware of my addiction led to the quintessential Capt. Kirk moment above. "Must ... find ... cores."

I'm covering core selection, but a number of faces already are looking skyward. Dan Weseman and the Wicked Cleanex mark their arrival with a series of slow rolls over the hangar.

Minutes later, the Wicked Cleanex taxis up and debuts its new paint and polish job. Thus ended all interest in cores.
