yeah...I'm an instrument rated PPL fixed wing...and I've been head scratching on that for a while now. Don't really get it....except that most gyros I see on the market would be ill suited for it with their uncovered open cockpits and all...
still, for low VFR to light IFR type conditions having the capability to just file would be useful for sure.
Just curious...for scud running, how slow can these gyros comfortably cruise...on the low end?
You want to be on the right side of the HV curve, so if your engine quits, you stand a chance of a successful landing. Generally that is about 65 mph for low altitude. --Never mind that low altitude flying leaves you with no time to find a landing spot, and you have lots of hazards (power lines, tower guy wires, etc) that are hard to see in good visibility. Scud running is not recommended with low ceilings and great visibility. Hell no if you need to worry about slowing down to avoid hazards
