The Corvair Authority
5000-18 HWY 17 #247
Orange Park, FL 32003

Dear Friend,
My name is William Wynne, and I go by the nickname of The Corvair Authority. I am the person on the right in the above photo, taken in 2000. Perhaps we've met before, or maybe this is the first chance I've had to say hello.
I'm putting together a comprehensive listing of everyone who has flown a Corvair powered airplane.
We currently have about 15,000 hours of flight time in our records, along with the names and pictures of the builders and their planes which accomplished this feat. In an attempt to ensure we don't leave anyone out, I'm sending this letter out to everyone we can find who may have flown or built a Corvair powered airplane. 2003 is going to be a very big year for Corvair powered airplanes. Interest in the motor is booming, based on our non-stop promotion and education efforts and the fact that a number of people we've worked with have begun flying their own Corvair powered airplanes. While I've worked tirelessly in the past years on this project, I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge and include all the work of the craftsmen and aviators who came before me. It is my intention to gather all of this information and share it with the media and new builders at airshows throughout the 2003 season.
If you will take the time to fill out and return the following questionnaire to my address above, you will have my personal thanks and my assurance that your contribution to the world of Corvair powered flight and sport aviation will be acknowledged. I would deeply appreciate any photographs or stories that you would like to share.
We are planning special gatherings at Sun 'N Fun, Brodhead and Oshkosh this year. I'd like to cordially invite you to attend these as our honored guest. We'll have further information at www.FlyCorvair.com/hangar.html about the exact date and times of these gatherings.
Looking forward to receiving your questionnaire along with photographs and stories.
William Wynne
