 Thank you Jay. I realize non pilots think we are a morbid bunch but fact is we can only manage risk... no such thing as "flight safety" other than on the couch.  Aviation has been mostly advanced from learning what others have experienced. Going to read this now.

Here is the NTSB report on the crash that Bruce mentioned. It was totally avoidable. Engine maintenance major screw up... very poorly done.
http://n8wq.scheevel.com/documents/accidents/fatal/N996DT.pdf

By the way, the folder that I uploaded to the group contains complete documentation of every Q type crash in the NTSB database prior to 2018. Most listings also contain a hyperlink to the complete NTSB summary in pdf format like the one above. To find this information, just go to the list folder: https://q-list.groups.io/g/main/files/accident%20analyses. I also summarized the accidents in two documents in that same folder. There is another spreadsheet from Richard Kazmerick that is redundant to the material in my spreadsheet and reports. This stuff is worthwhile reading if you are getting ready to fly a Q, because it puts you in possession of all of the serious mistakes that have already been made.

Cheers,
Jay

 TIA never did have much of a sense of humor. I used to try all kinds of radio contact and they'd just send me over east somewhere..usually when I was between layers!  Maybe my accent gave me away??   

Over water one always gets "automatic ruff". It was what an old time Hawaii WW2 pilot clued me in about that one. Only once
was I over a large lake.. called the Atlantic.  I stayed within 1 mile of the coast East of Daytona. Not extended and yes..I could make it back to something less wet than the ocean below if the fan up front quit.  

  He also let me know those fish shadows below from 500 or so feet are probably the "eatin kind".. meaning they will eat you if given the chance!!  Years later I lived a short time on Kauai and learned from the locals why the sea turtles would often be on the beaches..
tiger sharks like to munch on the turtles swimming fins, and the "honu" don't care much for being appetizers for the 
main course..surfers I'd guess.

 I need to visit with Mike. I wonder if I can take two of them Oklahoma Wal Mart pool floaties?? You are correct if the 
engine was cut loose after ditching; the Q bird would float like any other surfboard. Explosive engine mount bolts and cowling screws??  Funny Vern. Hahaha..  

 Last time this Kansas boy was on a sailboat (actually it was a large Catamaran) half the crew was barfing off the coast 
of Na Pali.  None of the tourists seemed much interested in eating dinner they paid for! I guess being a pilot and flying 
a lot over the hot Midwest trained my gizzard not to toss contents in choppy motions. At least Captain was impressed I 
could deal with 15 to 20 foot swells.  

 I might have gone in the Speedo when I earned my Private back when I was 22.. but at my age now that would be considered
severe punishment for any viewers! Bad.. bad bad.

We flew over TIA but t at 5500’ MSL and 6500’ MSL to avoid their Class C (4700’ top).  I’ve thought of the Caribbean also.  I am a bit apprehensive about loosing site of the horizon though.  Need to go to class with Mike Dwyer as he has been there with his Q200.  Summer might be best as all you need are T shirts flip flops and Speedos.  Gotta leave enough room for an inflatable raft.  I hear they will search for you a bit longer if they know your aircraft floats.
The American V.I. Is a looong way south!  Maybe we could rent a sailing yacht and head her south.  They probably won’t let us take it to the US V.I. So would need to but one and sell it when we’re done.  Would be a little older when we get back!

Norm Howell flew his 1 seat Quickie out of Enid.  I don’t recall any other Q’s here.
A guy at the Siloam Springs came over and told me of a Q 2 that crashed with both builders killed at Siloam Springs.  Does anyone remember who that was?  Something about a leak in the intake and it burned a valve.

Mint quality CORVAIR flight engine available

Jay Scheevel
 

Anyone interested in this corvair aero engine conversion, let me know. This is an engine expert who put it together and is on one of my other groups. Below is the explanation of what is included and how well crafted this build is. Maybe Pat Panzera can pass it around also.

Here is Ron's note to me:
"Jay/Others: Please be my guest to share the photos with whom you feel might benefit. This would be one of the lightest CORVAIR flight engines you will find with many premier upgrades. It features a 3.645" bore with ARIES forged pistons, SALIH Aluminum finned centrifugally cast iron lined cylinder barrels, all reciprocating parts are balanced to within 1 gram and the rotating mass was spun and dynamically balanced (as close as I could get it). The cam shaft is a reground OTTO "OT-10" with new valve lifters and new "fail-safe" timing gears. The engine features a "5th bearing on the prop end to protect the crankshaft from gyroscopic prop loads (analogous to the Jab/CAMIT double front crankshaft bearings). The cylinder heads have been completely upgraded with new bronze valve guides, new Stainless Steel valve seats, SS one piece valves, new springs ---. The combustion chambers were volume matched to within 0.1 cc and I took great pains with all clearances and tolerances throughout the entire engine. All external steel parts were electroless nickel plated and in addition I then powder-coated all parts that you see in black with the exception of the flywheel and starter field housing (they are baked on urethane "PPG Concept"). The charging system is similar to the belt driven CAMIT set-up; but, I used a 20 amp DYNAMO, driven by a Kevlar "V" belt. The starter is NIPPON DENSO, I feel that they make the best starters in the industry. In short I went through ever aspect of the engine to insure that it was up to aircraft flight standards, MPI inspected, NEW or completely re-worked. I am known for being VERY particular, especially when it comes to my airplane work.

The engine has been run on a test stand (several times) with the prop you see and a large cooling hood; it has been broken in. I have NOT run it on a dynamometer but I estimate the power output to be in the 100 + hp range. It is impressively smooth. I enjoyed the build process and took ~ 3 years of my leisure time to complete the project. The carburetor is a certified Marvel Schebler MA-3 SPA with all the current updates---brass float one piece venturi---. I have provisions for both cabin heat and carburetor heat (both sides of the engine exhaust system have a heat muff). I took great pains to build it right.

The KR guys really like the CORVAIR note http://www.n56ml.com/. A strong CORVAIR will pull a good KR at ~ 200 + mph in straight and level flight. I have seen 174 mph in my SONEX in straight level flight but remember my stall is < 40 mph with full flaps and the KR is ~ 60 mph or so, the old adage of thrust vs drag-- lift vs mass---the KR wing is thin and made to go fast but physics demands the loss of lift.

Anyway the synopsis in a nutshell and a neat project that few would undertake or be able to accomplish. I have procrastinated the sale of my CORVAIR project but I am now ready to let-er go. I have the 54" X 58" SenSenich prop, the fiberglass nose bowl and the powder coated 4130 SONEX engine mount shown in the photographs all to market. I have the 3300 Jab currently housed and flying in my plane and an extra early model "solid lifter" Jab 3300 engine with NEW < 70 hour CAMIT cylinder heads pickled and ready for back-up if needed. I just cannot see keeping the CORVAIR any longer.
