    Thanks for the replies. They are expensive and on further looking getting near the price of a 80hp 912. I am going to Benson days and Sun and Fun and hope to learn more about which engine would work best for me.

    I just discovered that Falcon also writes the insurance sponsored by the EAA. I think it would be up our benefit if the PRA could get with the EAA and sponser insurance option for gyros. It possibly provide some good low cost coverage.

    I have about 1350 hours fixed wing. I went to my first tailwheel airplane about 350 hours ago and saw a jump from my nosewheel Piper Colt. Still my liability was only $350 and dropped to $295 after getting a few more tailwheel hours. I just called Falcon for a ball park liability only quote for a single...

    Thanks. Thatís encouraging about the training requirements. Hopefully insurance for single place will be s lot less. I use USAA/Falcon for my RV3 liability only and itís about $295. I sent them a email but havenít heard back. Falcon just acts as a broker and gets quotes from the underwriter.

    Fixed Wing PP requirements to fly Gyr

    I have searched for an answer but still a little confused. What is required for a fixed wing private pilot to legally fly a single place gyro (Dual , solo and ground school requirements)?
    Was also also curious about cost of liability insurance for a single place gyro. I have asked my Insurance...

    I saw those numbers along the lower edge but couldnít quite make them out. Was thinking a legal N number should be 3 inch numbers. I have noticed at least locally the FAA is trying to push builders into using DARs....

    Thanks, I thought so. It was probably just an error on the authorís part. When building are there gyro DARís or does the FAA rep end up signing off on the build....

    There is a good article on gyros in the new issue of Sport Aviation. They show a single seat 582 Dominator and call it an ultralight. Is this possible? Are some Dominators able to avoid registration and be classed as ultralight? What would this standard dominator weight?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the replies. I sent John a PM. I came across a post somewhere from a person with a lite weight fixed wing that had used a 503 then 582 and finally s HKS. He said the HKS was not quite the performance of the 582 but superior enough he would never go back. The weight is very close with the...

    HKS 700e

    I am interested in building a Dominator with the 60hp HKS engine. After much searching I found one Dominator has flown with this engine. (Carl Schnieder from Iowa) Is anyone familiar with Carlís success with the HKS? I am new to gyros but have been flying for 49 years and plan to get plenty of training....
