Hello all. I drive a truck for a living, only home on weekends. I have had a passion for gyro's for about 5 years now. I have saved enuogh to buy one but don't want to jump in blind. If anyone lives in or near the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Delaware, or Virginia and has a gyro please contact me. I would like to see one up close and see one fly. I have all kinds of questions.
Thanks in advance.

Welcome, Paul. I recommend you attend a large fly-in (ROC or Mentone are the next large ones) and go for a ride, see what kind of gyros everyone else is flying, ask a lot of questions, etc. Once you do that you'll have a better idea of which gyros to look at purchasing.

I fly my Benson / Subaru gyro on a regular basis especially as the weather warms up. Been a bit windy the last few weeks. I am in the Cape Charles VA area (about 7 miles from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel) Lots of grass strips in the area. Do you know where Sting-Rays restaurant is? That is where Scott's field is. I operate out of a 2600 foot runway there. Crop duster named "Windy" is there. A 5000 foot parallel runway is 1/2 mile away. Great for training. Beautiful area with views to die for. Plenty of places to stay and beautiful beaches and sites. Rural area. Check out my web site for areas and photo. Go to search on the rotary forum and input eastern shore. You will see plenty of photos and aireal shots taken by Ron Awad during his stay here a few years ago. I would be happy to demo gyro for you. Always ready to go flying. Email me or give me a call if I can be of any assistance. www.capecharlesva.org

I'm in Suffolk & work in Va Bch. If you are amenable, I'd like to get together with you myself. So far, my gyro knowledge is from books, magazines, and this forum. Is there any time better than any other time?

I learned to fly my gyro back at the Suffolk airport many moons ago. I am the only active gyro pilot in this area now. I fly on the eastern shore, just on the other side of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. It is so beautiful over here. Went for a spin around the airport this afternoon before heading back to Virginia Beach. I still live at the beach but work on the shore. I have the gyro in it's own hanger at Windy's. Just down the street from StingRay's restaurant. Would be happy to fly for you anytime. Just give me a call or drop me an email. I should be flying in the morning this Saturday. Flying open seater, Benson machine with Subaru direct drive. It has been a most enjoyable machine. 757-464-6368 Va beach number or mobile 757-289-9266
