Thanks Steve for your post. Would it be feasible to 'convert' a good quality microlight into a gyro. I have a good 2 seater at my disposal (Pegasus) . It seems to me the project would be 80% already done.
Whilst it might be possible I think you will have a hard time trying to register this gyro with the CAA.
The CAA have a very short list of approved gyros - in addition there are a number of legacy single seaters first registered many moons ago - these are gradually dwindling away.
In the last couple of months there have been a couple of threads on this forum from UK members wanting to home build single seat gyros - all have resulted in long threads explaining the many many hurdles in the way of such an idea. Not impossible but not easy either.
Best contact these two
LAA - they manage homebuilt/kit built aircraft including gyros
BRA - group representing gyro pilots - note mainly modern factory two seaters ( but then again that's what flys in the UK ).
Good luck with your idea - it will be a difficult process.
