    Hi Marion I hope you and yours are doing well. Thought I would let you know I am flying more than ever 3 or 4 times a week. I got my sport gyro license, and have the gyro in a huge WWII bomber hanger at Madras about 20 miles from home. I met an X Vietnam heli pilot that also has a Sport Copter 912 so we have some things in common. We meet at local airports and do some flying together. Have a good time at the KBFFI.

    Dudley and I are back in Las Vegas. Stayed on the road for about a week longer than planned but was a good trip. So glad to be able to talk with you and family on the dry lake. Sounds like I missed the exciting part with the winds.

    My filing system wasn't the best on the trip and I've misplaced your email address. Mine here in Las Vegas is if you could resend.

    Thx - Kevin & Dud

    Continuing road trip with Dud, the black standard poodle. Stopped in Monterey Bay and headed to Seattle next. When we get back to Las Vegas, I'll send you pictures from the Philippines. So good the talk with you and the kids. Hope to be as sharp as you are when I get to next year . . at 65.

    Hello, My name is Jackie Fagan and was reading some old posts and came across one where you were telling of SuperMac conversion to 90 hp Mac. Can you tell me who did the conversion and what is involved? I know the crancase is milled down, center port is plugged, some sort of reed valve system to isolate crossflow, and small line to lube center bearing. I will soon be building a modified Bensen w/ soft landing gear and horizontal stabilizer on rudder. Can you steer me in the right direction, please? Please use PM

    Thank's, jcopter

    Hey Marion,
    Well I got another 2.5 hours of practice on the runway on Saturday..... I've got a problem with balancing on the mains, when the front wheel lifts off the ground it comes up to the left (with NO wind at all) and I'm thinking I've just got the stick to far to the left (even though I've focused on keeping it centered ) and that is why its coming up to the left...... once I get this figured out and stable I'll take it a little further until it lifts off..... but I've destroyed one gyro and don't want to do that again, so I'm taking it easy until it feels right. If I'm not flying but the time of the flyin I'll not be bringing it out, I'll just bring my car instead.
    See ya next month.....

    Hi Marion,
    How are your doing? Donna and I are well up here in Woodland. My Bonanza is back in Arkansas. I took it back for an autopilot install and of course we had a glitch with the stec controller. I flew back home on Southwest pending the repair. It turned out to be a good decision as the 10 days promised has turned into 25-so far ha ha. Give me an update on you,
    Blessed wishes

    take good care of yourself & keep in touch,

About Me

    Total Flight Time
    I retired from gyro flight instructing a few years back.
    I'm having my Bensen brought up to top shape and I will be flying again soon.
    Come fly with us at the annual Ken Brock Freedom Fly-in, Sept. 26-27-28, 2008, on the dry lake at El Mirage, Ca.
    Here is an update : My gyro friends in Chapter 1 went through my Bensen gyro that had not flown for nearly 13 years and got it airworthy so that I could fly again. I am happy to say that in June of 2008, I made my first gyro flight after nearly 13 years of retirement. The flight was wonderful . I am so happy to be flying again. It's a dream come true, thanks to my gyro flying buddies, Ed Nielesky, Teddy Udala, Bobby Bettis, Peter Printice and Dave Bacon. I flew at our Ken Brock Freedom fly-in last Sept. and
    I look forward to flying at our KBFF the last weekend of Sept. 2009.
    Come fly with me.
