    Miss Gidget Twinstarr Gyro up for sale

    I hate when that happens. I would actually like to buy the gyro, but I think what I am willing to pay is not what you would be willing to take for it!

    Wrens GA Fly-in IS... yes IS... happening in 2020. Sep 18 and 19

    Its always been something people complain about.... how they showed up to a fly in and didn't feel like they got a warm welcome. You have to understand that these fly -ins are a way for people who are already " in the group " can spend a few days hanging out, flying, and being social...

    Some Thoughts on the Rotary Wing Forum.

    The "PRA " is nothing more than three letters in the alphabet. The "PRA " is not a big massive organization with hundreds of employees and staff and protocols... The " PRA" today is literally a small rural airport in northern Indiana, with a double wide trailer there as a office, a row...

    Some Thoughts on the Rotary Wing Forum.

    So now I think I understand the point you are trying to make.... Sounds like to me, your flaming Vance, because he has made you feel that he is strickly " By the book " and presents himself as the type that does no wrong... And perhaps he has criticized other people for mistakes or...

    Some Thoughts on the Rotary Wing Forum.

    Yeah I believe it is. I know if offered a flight in your gyro behind you in your avatar, I would almost promise you I wouldn't ask to see your paperwork. Perhaps if I was loaned your gyro to fly a long multi stop cross country, I might want to know where the paperwork is, and maybe even...

    Some Thoughts on the Rotary Wing Forum.

    Exactly. Registration does not in any way make a aircraft more safe or less safe. And at least when it comes to a simple open framed flying machine like a gyroplane or ultralight airplane... AW certificate really means nothing. Anyone who has built a gyro or small light sport /...

    Some Thoughts on the Rotary Wing Forum.

    I can break it down and make it really easy to understand for all... 1. If your popular on this forum... be that, you post a lot, have a high post count, your well known in the gyro community, your well-liked ( by a good majority at least .... you become a high profile person here...

    Build thread on the GT-VX2 Explorer.

    Things happen greg. I have bent the keel and tail on my gyro before. And I don't give 2 F's what you think or say, I know damn well I am one of the best and most naturally talented gyro pilots around. I've seen many good pilots ding a machine up. No reason to throw Vance under the bus.

    When Dennis first showed up at Mentone many years ago with his first gyro... long before he had opened or possibly even considering becoming a kit maker... I looked over his gyro very closely, and might have even flown it. Long story short, I took issue with the twist grip throttle. The...

    All Talk, No Action

    I find it crazy that Greg would make a post like that, then not come back and comment further for days.
