7. ### Good numbers ?

I guess those specs weren’t as good as the C-130, at least not in the eyes of the Air Force.
8. ### New EAA Chapter Build Project SoCal

Doran, I agree with everything you said. I’m not saying not to give rides. I’m just saying that turning out these 10 minute young eagles flights just to pump up the EAA numbers isn’t the best way to do it. What is much more helpful, in my opinion, would be taking passengers with you during the...
9. ### New EAA Chapter Build Project SoCal

Mr. Ryan, when I came to your chapter, as a very active experimental aIrplane builder and flyer, I was looking for hangar space. I had a flying experimental I built and another I was in the process of building. You had no hangar space available because there were nothing but rusty dusty...
10. ### New EAA Chapter Build Project SoCal

Where are you located? I’ll happily stop by if I can gain more value in doing so than something else I could be doing with my time. EAA caters to young kids and retired people, but forgets about the 40 years in between. I understand the marginal benefit of young Eagles and pancake breakfasts...
11. ### New EAA Chapter Build Project SoCal

I understand that EAA is being treated like a social club for the older members. But younger members have enough social clubs on their phones alone (I am not one of them, I am social media free). An EAA chapter that is just a social club isn’t going to attract young pilots. Young pilots want to...
12. ### New EAA Chapter Build Project SoCal

My opinion might not be favorable, but I don’t think Young Eagles is really having any effect. First, the kids flying young eagles flights are already interested in aviation. Also, they are a long ways from being pilots. What EAA needs to focus on is young active pilots. All EAA chapters ever do...
13. ### New EAA Chapter Build Project SoCal

Finally, an EAA chapter actually doing something besides a pancake breakfast! I wish the chapters down here had that kind of activity.
14. ### Intake Design Change Results

I certainly don’t see what the downside could be besides the cost. I guess it depends how important even mixture distribution is to you. You can always fly it with the stock intake manifold and see how it does for you. What aircraft are you putting the Corvair in. The intake manifolds are...
15. ### Intake Design Change Results

So just how well can a Corvair run with the stock heads and intake logs? Here are some results from yesterday's testing. This is a screenshot of my EIS data. The red cells are when each cylinder first peaks. Notice how tightly together these are, indicating very good mixture distribution. The...
