    How to get your basic Medical

    Vance, I want to thank you for taking the time to talk to me at the PRA meet. Your reference to the AME in Chicago was great and I took your advice to move forward. I got of to a slow start as I was trying to book time with a specialist and found out they did not know anything about the FAA...

    How to get your basic Medical

    Hi John and the group! I talked to an AME yesterday evening. There are a few things in my medical history that are problematic, but are not show stoppers. One of them will require a 6 month lead time, however, since I have been on the required protocol, the AME considers it to be less time in...

    Rick I understand you are an instructor in gyroplanes. Would you consider a couple of hours of instruction for myself? Will you be in attendance at the 2021 PRA Convention at all? I am in Saline, Michigan. [email protected]

    Are there any Instructors attending the 2021 PRA Convention?

    HI all! I had the pleasure of being a student of Desmond Butts at the 2020 PRA convention. I made arrangements with him prior to the convention. I got a couple of hours in last year in an Auto Gyro MTO. This year Desmond will not be available. Will there be any instructors at this year's...

    Reflex Airfoils

    Jean Claude: Thank you for being so patient. This was a very enlightening experience. Now I understand more of what the curves are trying to tell me when I see them. Sincerely Curtis Scholl

    Reflex Airfoils

    Yes, that is the one of the many curves on that page and I am glad you set me straight on the Reynolds number. I should have paid more attention to the URL and downloaded the file myself <<l’étudiant est embarrassé>> Sorry to make you do double duty. So am going to now use what you wrote: "...

    Reflex Airfoils

    Jean Claude: I see this is a NACA plot. I do not have a reference on Clark YS from NACA. What Reynolds number was this graph based upon? The airfoil database I am using shows many curves based on Reynolds Number. I can isolate a curve if I know which RN was used. http://airfoiltools.com...

    Reflex Airfoils

    Jean Claude: Excellent explanation. I am looking at the Cm curves for many airfoils that are related to the 8H12...and depending on Reynolds Number (dimensionless, that I recall) this higher Reynolds number curves dip well into the -.08 region for negative angles, and near .01 at 15 deg AoA...

    Reflex Airfoils

    Hi all "Zero Moment" ... Zero or near Zero Cm.. That is what I should be looking for.. So what I am understanding is that there is a tendency for a blade to "turn turtle" given the situation that would allow it to happen and ruin everyone's day. So the questions are 1. Zero Moment or more...
