    Thanks. As it turns out yesterday I picked up some cherry blades yesterday from Bob Aspergren. Took a few other J2 items as well (cleaned him out). Bob said that you do J2 training. Is that correct? Would you do J2 transition training for me?

    Also, what did you do about the rudder cables on your J2? Do you still have the "conrolex" cables or did you get approval for something else? Mine need replacement to be re-greased (some how).

    I'm interested in gyroplane training and I hear you are a cfi with an 18a. Where are you located? I'm in Carmel Valley.

    Hey WaspAir,
    I was wondering if you knew of any available J2 blades. Mine seem to be airworthy (still working on them) but they are tired and could be replaced. I know of one set of blades but they are going for a rather handsome price. What would you pay for a set of J2 blades anyway?

    Thanks for backing me up on my fuel tank posts. I can't know what the fudging:lying ratio was there with Dofin, but he definitely knew the thing leaked when at near full capacity.

    Quick question: as a PP-ASEL, what would I have had to do extra in my PTS to get a PP-Gyro vs. only a SP? Can I fly at night in my gyro now as a PP-ASEL?

    Hi wasp air, I'm somewhat new to all this and I had a couple of questions I hope you could answer for me.

    How much would you charge for an introductory flight in your gyro? How much for lessons?

    I'm looking at my options for flying gyros (SP, recreational, private) for a side by side gyro I would purchase later. I'm liking the idea of jump takeoffs and more freedom with the more advanced licenses, but not sure what would be best for my needs.

    What exactly is the differences between recreational and private pilot licenses?
    Is there any pilots license that allows someone to purchase and fly a completely factory-built gyro in the US?

    I live in boulder creek (just north of Santa Cruz) and would rather not fly all the way to Utah just to give my benefactor friend a feel of gyro flight to know that's the way to go.

    Thanks for any help.

    A full CFI in category X class Y can instruct for any level of certificate in category X class Y. E.g., I have a full CFI rating in rotorcraft - gyroplane; I can instruct for sport pilot, recreational, private, commercial, or instructor ratings in rotorcraft - gyroplane. A Sport Pilot instructor rating allows you to instruct ONLY for the sport pilot ratings, not recreational, private, etc.

    Any CFI can instruct SPY? Or any Gyro CFI can instruct?

    I would be interested in a ride in your J2 or AS18. I travel between Oregon and SO CA frequently and often stop in the San Jose area. What are the costs and how much notice do you need to schedule some time? I have flown Bensen in the past but currently fly FW.

    It's a McCulloch Super J-2, Standard Airworthiness side-by-side two place, Lycoming O-360, rotor system resembling a Hughes 269 / Schweizer 300 helicopter.
