      Nobody else mentioned THAT kind of weather !!

        Most have posted them on Facebook I suspect because it is so much easier.
        However you must have missed my post where we were asked for pictures.

          It means that you are a racist for discriminating based on skin color.
          What difference does skin color make to gyroplane discussions???
          Are you suggesting that throwing in a token black/brown/yellow/blue/green person into a picture somehow makes us/aviation better?
          Are you suggesting that WE are racists just because there is not a black/brown/yellow/blue/green person is not in the picture?
          Aviation does not discriminate (unlike you) against people by their skin color. I dare you to prove otherwise.

            You don't have to look very hard to find lots of pictures of AirVenture Chris.

            There are fewer pictures of The PRA Convention at Mentone because there were fewer people there.

            It appears some of the prolific picture takers weren't there this year.

            I was busy giving a talk, getting a flight review and judging aircraft.

            I took the first at Fulton County Airport Monday, two gyroplanes had just arrived.

            The second and third are the first pilots briefing of the event.

              Thanks Vance ! Poor attendance ? Sorry to hear that. I think that is the classroom where I earned my repairman's certificate.

              Was Steve Mcgowan there ? How about Ron Menzie ? Anyone hear anything from Marty Weaver ? Tommy Milton ?

              Duane Hunn ? How about the CFI guy with the SxS Dominator ?

              Any heli vendors this year ?

                I didnít say there was poor attendance Chris; only that there were more people at AirVenture.

                The PRA Convention was well attended compared to recent years.

                Steve McGowan was there and training in The Black.

                Ron Menzie was there to give a seminar about check rides.

                I donít recall seeing Marty Weaver, Tom Milton or Duane Hunn but that doesnít mean they werenít there.

                I donít know about a side by side Dominator.

                Chris Lord was there with a lot of ELAs.

                Greg Gremminger was there giving rides in a Magni.

                Greg Spicola was giving rides in the American Ranger by Silverlight.

                Wayne Hubbs flew his Magni up from Tennessee, Carol and Dick DeGraw flew in from somewhere.

                Ernie and Mike Boyette were there with Dominators and Ernie went flying with me in a two place Dominator that he built many years ago.

                Jeff Tipton was there along with too many others to mention.

                I feel it was a great convention and time well spent.

                    She had a 914 in her and we were near gross.

                    She flew slightly nose down because she was set up for much lighter people.

                    I am always amazed at how nicely a Dominator flies.

                    I could not see the instruments and had to ask Ernie for the airspeed and altitude.

                    It was a great example of flying by pitch and sight picture using the instruments to quantify airspeed and altitude.

                    I was able to fly to practical test standards for close to an hour including S turns over a road.

                    I did not see any Helicopter Vendors at Mentone. There were lots at AirVenture.

                      I did not know that Ernie had a 2 place with a 914 on it ! So COOL ! I thought it might have had that SUB4 EA81. I wonder if he still has that ?

                      Vance, do you have any trouble with the new forum format ?

                      Thanks for filling in my blanks lately.....I really mean it ! Such a lack of posting around this busy time of year is somewhat frustrating !

                      Remember when Ron A had that Dom with the Yamaha on it.......everyone was havin' a great time !

                        I like that the new format has a like button.

                        I like the photo size options.

                        I like the way it remembers what you were going to write when you go off somewhere else.

                        What sort of trouble are you asking about?

                        Glad to fill in your blanks Chris.

                        I had a great time at Air Venture and at the PRA convention.

                          Thanks again, Vance ! I have no trouble & also like some of the new stuff........I thought that there were a lot of complaints from others ?
