    Sounds

    The only thing I found truly exciting today was the far off sound of a helicopter. I could hear it, inside my house, over the noise of my television. It interrupted everything. I could not sit there and not seek out that sound. I stopped everything to find it. I never saw it but yet I...

    Vortex Ring State & Settling With Power

    Sarcasm? When he was asking me one day about the corrective action for SWP I answered with "reduce collective and forward cyclic" He replied with, the rotor does not care witch way it goes. If you were in a situation where you could not nose over and gain airspeed, such as an obstacle, or...

    Accident report on our good friend Steve Weir. God Speed

    This is a perfect drawing of the assembly. How do we go about making that assemble in only one fashion, so as to prevent such an accident?

    Accident report on our good friend Steve Weir. God Speed

    Whoever sent you that email has it grossly wrong. I wish that you would not have posted that. This can only lead to confusion. We have a clear understanding of what actually/factually happened and we need to focus on getting the word out and to educate people of this simple but fatal error.

    Steve Weir

    Steve was the first contact I had with the PRA 62. First by email. Then by phone. My first time ever seeing a gyro fly was two years ago at my first meeting that I attended. Steve pulled out his Dragonfly and fired it up. Everyone there commented on how well he flew it and that he really...

    Accident report on our good friend Steve Weir. God Speed

    What about having these types of parts only assemble one possible way. For Example: If one attempts to assemble a piece incorrectly the bolt holes won't line up. Or some type of tab or slot that only allows parts to be alighned a specific way.

    Steve Weir

    Steve was the best ambassador to the new gyro enthusiast. I can attest to this personally. I did not know him well but helped me get interested and involved in the PRA and the chapter. I will miss him.
