Hi All,

My name is Russ and I have just joined. I was pointed in this direction by PPG Doug (who I owe a big "thank you" to. I am located just north of Dayton, Ohio. Originally from the UK, married to an American, we have been living here for 3 years.

I guess my interest in gyrocopters started as a child when I saw Little Nellie in James Bond. I thought it was so cool. But time and money, and to a degree availability, meant that I tried other forms of aviation - Paragliding, Ultra light, Trikes, before gyros, but that is where my true passion lies.

Late last year I took some flying lessons with a great guy, Ed Newbold, over in Heath. I only managed to get 7 hours of instruction and then work commitments put a hold on my training. In theory, I should now have more time, well, at least some time to continue with Ed.

Naturally, I am looking to buy a gyro and the forum is a great place to start. Lots of knowledge and information, discussions and the classifieds / for sale. The adventure begins here.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I will mention at this point, that I travel a lot for work, which can make access to the internet a challenge - which also means that it can take some time for me to respond to messages. I just want folks to know I'm not being rude, just not always available.
