I'm well aware of the concerns about the Corvair crankshaft being able 
to take the stresses of turning a prop, but the guys flying Corvair 
engines are technically rigorous and no crazier than the typical 
experimental/homebuilt aircraft type. It would probably behoove the 
Corvair community to have a tighter relationship with them.

There's a guy who seems to be leading the commercial end of the 


and here's a guy who has built an exceptional engine and been flying 
it for a while:


These are all, of course, very small homebuilt aircraft...one or 
barely two seaters as long as the two aren't heavy people.
