Still interested in making a Ft Worth Area Zenith Builders Group meeting.  Also, Doug Boggs (Ft. Worth 701 builder) is back in town after the holidays.  He's interested too.  You can reach him at Doug@DougBoggs.Com

I found a good Corvair engine to build since your last email... 3 years ago. I have two others that are not buildable, but have taken apart for the experience before doing my "real" one. Your engine looks sharp! How many hours do you have logged on your Corvair conversion?

Thanks for the friend request. Based on the photos, things are looking good. Give me a call on the weekend or any evening and we can discuss the training. (918-840-2200)


Here’s some more information on the training. I plan on charging $100 per hour dual (that’s wet) and $20 per hour for ground training. The ground rate will applied to pre-flight and post-flight briefing time. I’m trying to keep my rate about the same as dual for a C-150 but it’s not easy. It’s hard to believe that fuel alone is running about $30 per hour…oh well, we just have to get used to that. However, because I expect some training to come from a distance, I’ll put trainees up at my house for no cost. I have a unique separate bedroom and bath for a guest that really works well.

Floyd, I would love to meet with ya'll. I live in Burleson and commute back and forth to San Angelo, TX where my father and I are actually building the plane. Give me a call sometime. 817-995-0874, or jdw@rvservices-tx.com.


I'll try and get some of the pictures from this week posted. Had some interesting issues with my kit, plans, instructions etc. Fun and Games, // Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Thanks for getting back to me. I can tell there is a lot of enthusiasm out there that will help me complete my project(s). In a month I should have some money to resume search for a Corvair engine. I will try harder to find a Corvair club here in Vermont that may have a core. All the pictures available on line are certainly motivating me to keep focused on completing my CH750. I was ten years old when I had my first ride in a two-place Luscombe with my dad- that same excitement is in me now! Tom
