Recent FAA Gyro cancellations - lots
A browse through the FAA aircraft registration CANCELLATIONS over the past few weeks shows a large amount of "ye olde gyros" being cancelled - this looks like quiet a large cull - note that in among the cancellations must have been at least 15 examples of the Mini 500 chopper too.
I may well have missed some as types such as "BILLY BOB HOT DOG 101" doesn't always register in my mind as a gyro.....
I didn't spot any new gyros registered in the past couple of weeks ( apologies if I missed yours )

Gyro Gyros LINKS
Some of these are really old. Russ Jansen was killed in a crash 15 or more years ago. If "Manning" is Dan Manning, he was an early Florida gyro pilot who intentionally gave up gyro flying -- and wrote up his reasons why in the PRA magazine -- in the mid-70's.
BTW, the "Riley" on the list isn't me. I went Part 103 in the 80's and surrendered N-88770, the number of my first gyro. I had already parted it out to raise college money!).
I've been told that in the next few months the FAA had ask for new registrations from everyone. Anyone who is not sent in a new registration by a certain date, will be canceled. The database has not been updated in many years. This is something that should be done anyway.
For some years I have been afflicted with the belief that flight is possible to man. The disease has increased in severity and I feel it will soon cost me an increased amount of money, if not my life. — Wilbur Wright, beginning of his first letter to Octave Chanute, 13 May 1900.
When flying a gyroplane, why is it the higher you fly, the small your seat becomes?
PRA # 38604
There's been a rolling requirement for renewal of registration underway for a very long time now, with everybody eventually to get a notice over a three year period. They broke down the entire registration list into blocks depending on month in which it was last registered, and have been creating staggered expiration dates on that basis. Some of my aircraft have come due while others haven't yet.
I expect that plenty of additional Bensens will bite the registration dust before it is all over, because nobody knows a current address and/or they're sitting in a barn somewhere and haven't had air beneath the wheels in decades.
Warning to those tempted to renew early -- if you send in the renewal early, say in March when it's not due until July, your new renewal date will be in March, and three years from now you'll have a March deadline instead of a July deadline.
Every 3 years your N# must be renewed. I have both my Sparrow Hawk and the Parsons re-registered just in time before they lapsed..
My B8-M gyro N544SM was sold in 1993.. Only saw it once at Mentone years later.. But not since...
Wonder what happened to it...
If the reminder isn't getting to you, it probably means that you are in violation of FAR 47.45, which reads as follows:
§ 47.45 Change of address.
Within 30 days after any change in a registered owner's mailing address, the registered owner must notify the Registry in writing of the change of address. If a post office box or mailing drop is used for mailing purposes, the registered owner also must provide that owner's physical address or location. Upon acceptance, the Registry will issue, without charge, a revised Certificate of Aircraft Registration, AC Form 8050–3, reflecting the new mailing address. When a post office box or mailing drop is used for mailing purposes, and the registered owner's physical address or location changes, the registered owner must notify the Registry in writing of the new address or location within 30 days.
If you have any doubt about it, you can always go to www.faa.gov, put in your N-number in the search block, and it will tell you the current expiration date of your registration (they all have them now).
By the way, for those who weren't aware, you have the same 30 day notice requirement for your pilot certificate under FAR 61.60, and if you're not up to date on that one, your license is invalid.
§ 61.60 Change of address.
The holder of a pilot, flight instructor, or ground instructor certificate who has made a change in permanent mailing address may not, after 30 days from that date, exercise the privileges of the certificate unless the holder has notified in writing the FAA, Airman Certification Branch, P.O. Box 25082, Oklahoma City, OK 73125, of the new permanent mailing address, or if the permanent mailing address includes a post office box number, then the holder's current residential address.
Many people forget this, and just update when they go for their next medical certificate, but that can be way, way to late to be legal. If you're flying on Sport Pilot privileges and using a driver's license without a medical, the FAA won't get address updates.
And updating the address for your pilot certificate (which is handled by the Airmen Certification branch) does NOT update the address for any aircraft you own (handled by the Aircraft Registry). They don't cross check for you.
Not complying with these rules can also be enough of a technical violation that your insurance is void (yikes!).
P.S. Just to be clear, "you" here means any randomly picked U.S. gyro owner, not you personally, Leigh.

You may not have done John, but to 'fess up, in this case...it does. Good call.
When Stu moved the family down to Tampa from Orlando seems that the address change was not done, and I who should have know better, was over here and not thinking.
The Hornet has been in the hanger since it expired waiting for the prerotator so I think we might have got lucky there. No excuse though. When this was posted I had an 'Oh ****' moment, then contacted him. He of course said no reminders, which of course there wern't... because the address was wrong. Working on it now.
Luckily a bit more up to speed on the Bensen here having just renewed the Permit to Fly. Though flying out of Rissington is still on hold with a bureaucratic to and fro going on between departments of the RAF about clearance to operate from there. Who says life isn't fun.
I spoke to an FAA official recently regarding the "purge" and refresh of the registrations. They expect to lose nearly 1/3 of the USA fleet of record.
