CFI, flight examiner, and aircraft inspector.
My background: I first flew gyrogilders with my father in 1962 when I was 12 y/o, and have been flying powered gyros since 1982, having accumulated in excess of 3,000 hours instructing since 1990. I am available 7 days a week for training, with live in accomodation on the airport as well as motel accomodation close by. People can fly into Melbourne International airport, take a shuttle bus to Ballarat, where I will pick them up and take them to their accomodation. Gyro students from all over the world are most welcome.

I offer on farm training as some farmers live up to 500 ks from Parkes if traveling here doesn't suit their schedule. I am soon to open a base in Warren , another 180ks NW of Parkes in cotton/cattle growing country, which will be called Macquarie Rotorcraft.

From Chuck Irby: I have had training with five different instructors. I put Mike at the top of the list of the instructors I have been exposed to. A 30 minute lesson with Mike was comparable to roughly 1 1/2 hours training with one CFI I went to, and probably 2 hours with another CFI.
