    Flying into Oshkosh

    Having flown into Oshkosh in a fixed wing, I looked at the NOTAM to see if there was a special route for gyros. I didn't see a listing. For those who have flown a gyro to Oshkosh, can you enlighten me on what arrival you used? Did they have you blend in with the fixed wings or did I miss...

    Costs of gyros

    From watching the "For Sale" ads in several national web sites I am suffering from sticker shock. Gyros came into existence as a pathway for the average guy to get into the air. Now most cost more than my Bonanza. Can't a descent gyro still be built as an under 10k Kit ? I realize if you use a...

    Why I re-joined PRA

    Some have read a previous poll where I stated my reasons for exiting PRA, Disappointment with the magazine, poor vendor support, insurance issues, the airport purchase etc. After attending the El Mirage fly in, I concluded that none of those issues matter. (Sounds hokey doesn't it.) What I...

    Rotorblade flutter

    Guys I'm wondering if some of the accidents we classified and PPOs could have been caused by rotorblade flutter. I don't know if this event is even possible but, I have seen control surfaces flutter at high speed, usually due to imbalance, and rip apart. I was thinking last night that some...

    Less for More

    I just finished reading where PRA dues are increasing and the magazines are being reduced. I am very disappointed with this developement. I believe it is time to take a different approach to our problems, go back to basics. It is my opinion that it is time to sell the airport and use the funds...

He is using a trigger fired ignition system and the gyro seems to run excellent. Except--at 3000 RPM the...
