    This instructor is speaking of modern gyroplanes like the Autogyro GMBH and Magni products.

    I sent the author a note and he was kind enough to get back to me. He said that his testing showed that no rudder was required turning left and very little turning right.

    I responded that I would suspend disbelief in order to benefit from his book.

    I hope to get into in deeper when I get back from Mentone.

    I had a lovely final day at AirVenture and just arrived in Rochester and have secured a room for the week.

    I was fortunate enough to hear Dick Rutan’s description of the Voyager round the world nonstop flight. He is a wonderful story teller and it is a wonderful story.

    It was probably the high point of my AirVenture experience with perhaps the exception of hearing one of my clients; Jerry talk about setting a cross country record in his RV.

    I also spent a lot of time at the National Association of Flight Instructors learning about how to be a better CFI.

    Sorry, I didn’t get any pictures.

    I have a tenuous and painfully slow internet connection and it appears to have repeated what I wrote while I waited for the post to take.

        Ol' Shakespeare didn't start most of his sentences with "I" either.... a true master of the language (sigh).....

          Hey Smack,your biography starts with the dreaded "I" letter

          I like reading Vance's articles.

          I thought that Shakespeare sold fishing equipment.
