Corvair EIB Build at Zenith Open House – This Weekend


We have recently launched our “Engine in a Box” product offering for the Corvair at Oshkosh 2016 and you can come see what it is like to build one first hand at the Zenith Aircraft open house this weekend.  Dan Weseman and William Wynne are headed up there now and will be there assembling an engine in the “EIB” format this weekend.  See more about the open house HERE.

The “EIB” project is an important advancement in the Corvair flight engine movement because it allows a builder to jump in with two feet and get their project under way quickly.  It takes the guess work and leg work out of a traditional Corvair build and allows the builder to focus on the engine build itself – the Learn, Build and Fly portion – and eliminates the “Parts Gathering” session of the build.  It also consolidates shipping costs and the “knowing what else I need to order” dilemma.  Everything you need to be successful and run your engine is in the box; labeled, tagged and with instructions.  All the way down to the sealants, gaskets, hardware and admission to a build school.  We offer an option to have the bottom end assembled to jump start your project.

We have also recently launched our Corvair 3.3L engine option and are taking orders for the first production round.  The Corvair 3.3L is a stroked option for the Corvair engine and produces reliable increased lower end torque (off the ground faster) and a higher overall horse power out-put using the “no replacement for dis-placement” technology that limits stress to the engine.

If you are considering using a Corvair on your project this is an opportune time for you to get a look at the build process and talk to the two most knowledgeable people on the topic:  William Wynne and Dan Weseman.  Hope to see your there!
