Congratulations, Brent! Wonderful achievement.
I fondly remember training with Ron for my solo sign-off a few years ago in the yellow egg- no stab in those days.

That's a good on ya', Brent.
What's in the future? We have a need for instructors.;)

Thanks guys, I have been thinking of doing some instructing. But not for a few years of more experience 1st. Ron's RAF has the Sparrowhawk conversion. Its flys very nice. I also me Mr. Foster there. Today I think he is taking his CFI for helicopters. Going to try to fly to Mentone next month with Tim, But not much on tent sleeping.

Congratulations on your rating, Brent. I'm right on your heels. Just after you left, another two RAF 2000's showed up for conversion. Man, is Ron keeping busy!
See you later,

Ya Ron was busy. I truly hope its an upward swing for the gyro community.
Are you still at Ron's Ed. It would be nice to see your machine at Mentone.

Way to go Brent, how does it feel to be the newest gyro pilot in the USA? Many safe hours of flying, and enjoy the privlidge of flight in a gyro that so few people get to experience.
