    Brian Jackson - I started a new post that hopefully won't get hijacked.

    Instructor Pack

    What are the pros and cons of including an Instructor Pack (Stick, Rudder Pedals, Instruments) in the back seat when you build a tandem gyroplane?

    Brain Jackson - I'm going to start a new thread on that topic and try my best to not include anything that will derail it...

    Eddie - I'm really excited about building my own gyro! I worked my way through college as a mechanic but post master's, I ended up being a computer geek administrator who's only tool was a pencil.

    I really wish I could go the straight to gyro certificate route but the logistics are nightmarish....

    Loftus - Do you really think someone 73 years old learns new physical skills a quickly as a 20 or 30 something? How old are you? How many seniors have you trained as pilots? My CFI - an AOPA award winner says I'm doing fine but it will just take me longer than her younger students for the flying...

    "
    May I suggest that you look into Sport Copter's new 2-place, the Vortex M2?
    "

    Kolibri, On the Sport Copter Web site I only saw Vortex and Vortex M912 no M2. If it not LSA, not 2 seat Tandem and not fully enclosed, I'm not interested.

    JJ Campbell posted a Visitor Message for Tyger
    It might be because I rode motorcycles for a couple of decades, but the wind-in-my-face is definitely out of my system. Not to mention, I've hated every ride I ever had in a convertible!

    Also, I did get a demo ride in an MTO which I greatly enjoyed despite it being open-air. However, my...

    All the tandem gyro POHs I've seen require you to take the rear stick out unless the back seat is occupied by a qualified CFI.

    And, yes, I am very uncomfortable about buying/building a gyro before I have my pilot's license. To me, that is a classic case of putting the cart before the...

    started a topic Operating Temperature

    Operating Temperature

    Both the Calidus and Cavalon POHs state that:
    2.2 Environmental Limitations: Temperature -15 to +35 C
    5.1 Demonstrated Operating Temperature 40 C

    Why the 5 (10 F) difference? And which is the correct answer?

    I've been told by three different gyroplane CFIs (not fixed-wing) that I am better off perusing my fixed-wing license since I will get a better grasp of the basics in a fixed-wing. They also point out the difficulty of directly obtaining my license via the gyroplane route since there are few if any...

    Calidus Instructor Pack

    I'm in the early stages of planning to buy and build a Calidus (Currently working on Sport Fixed-Wing License.) Since I'll soon be 73, it is taking me a lot of hours to get my license and then I need my gyro endorsement and then the huge expense of the Calidus.

    Needless to say, I'm worried...
