William is dedicated to testing all his ideas on the ground and then in flight, constantly looking for how to break not just the parts but the system as a whole. William’s adherence to this testing principal is THE critical factor of why I am drawn to building a Corvair. I identify very strongly with this approach to machinery — either the flying or the computing kind.
