I thought it was time to give an update on my corvair 601XL. The airplane has 72 hrs on it now...keep in mind that the first flight was just in the middle of june. Since the moment we mounted the engine I have only adjusted the timing, changed the oil and pulled the plugs for inspection. Haven't had to turn a single bolt or screw on the fwf. It has turnkey reliability. I flew from FL to PIT then onto oshkosh and back to PIT. I have carried a few passengers including my father.

My next long trip is planned for the middle of september. I'll be coming out to mexico, MO for hangar day at the factory. See ya there
