Episode 38 “Corvair Engines for your Sonex"

June 2018

Corvair conversions continue to find favor with experimental aircraft builders, and a growing number of Sonex pilots are now flying behind Corvair power plants. We speak with a builder about his decision making process that led him to an alternate engine, and hear about his experience building and flying behind a Corvair engine.


Jason Flint. Jason is builder of Sonex #1655, a taildragger Sonex powered by a Corvair conversion that he assembled using William Wynn parts and manuals. Jason is a relatively new sport pilot, starting his training in 2012 and finished less than 6 months later. He completed construction of his plane in 2017, and has 100 hours on it in the first year flying.
