    N556XT Titanium Explorer - 15-7-16

    This post is modified because I was notified privately that Chris was offended. My apologies to Chris for assuming, and you know what that makes of all of us.... While I also don't agree with Steve's posting so soon, when is the proper time to post about something this tragic? As strongly as I...

    Congratulations Gregg Ludwig on adding on SP-CFI Gyroplane

    Abid, It's nice to hear you've got another customer flying an AR-1, and another CFI in the stable at Z-hills. Once you have a gyro DPE on-site, you can truly say you are a one-stop gyro manufacturer. How many other gyro manufacturers can offer on-site training, on-site build assistance...

    90 MPH in an Air Command?

    Greg, I also had a buddy who flew a tandem Air Command with the tall tail, and Skywheels. He was out flying fast, with a heavy passenger, doing somewhere near 90mph, when the gyro abruptly stood up on it's tail. The pilot immediately reacted by rolling off to the side, which probably saved...

    Fatality at Centralia, Illinois

    Ray was really a nice guy, spent a ton of his time and money sharing the joys of flying family and friends around with his Dominator. Larry, please express my condolences to Vickie, this is truly heartbreaking....

    Why is there not a lot of love for the RAF2000

    As a former owner of an RAF, modified with a Boyer stab, here's my two cents' worth: Even while I owned my RAF, if someone contacted me regarding buying one, my answer was "don't". In my opinion, the interest in used RAF's still lingers due to the relatively low cost of getting into one. Yes...

    Happy Birthday Mark Green!

    Thanks! It's not the best birthday this year, suffering through another ice storm, so we're running on generator power. Cathy barely got home from town, due to limbs falling across the roads! It will definitely be a quiet day spent inside.

    Understanding VX and VY to Fly safe.

    John, I do agree with one of Ben's suggestions: you absolutely need a lot more stick time to understand what's happening during takeoff when flying a gyroplane. I have no idea how much stick time you have, but it's apparent here it's not been enough. Trying to learn how to fly via this forum...
