Please enlighten us on why the Corvair is a poor candidate for a flight engine.

Ready to fly, it is substantially lighter than a Continental O-200 and it makes more thrust as proven with dynomometer testing.

It has a forged crank and rods, and forged pistons are installed in flight engines.

It is heat tolerant and durable, with a factory CHT redline of 575 F.

With the addition of a 5th bearing on the front of the case (not pictured on my engine, but one resides there now), propeller loads are supported for even greater crankshaft reliability.

The dual coil/dual point distributor ignition has been failure free since it's development by William Wynne. Dual plugs are not needed in a small bore, high compression, six cylinder engine.

Modern Viton o-rings and better quality gaskets make for leak free engines.

It's a real airplane engine. Period. The Corvair engine has been flying since the Corvair was introduced in 1960.

You forgot to add "levitating" to the list.
