That first picture is perfect......... except for one thing....... :unsure:
 
I looked at your customers for quite a while and then noticed an aircraft.
 
Will you have a chance to do any tourist stuff while there? National Museum is awesome.

I have a day here. Thanks for recommendation. We have to breakdown today but after that I am going for little shopping for my son and wife and maybe visit some places. Already went up to Taipei 101 the tallest building in Taiwan.

It’s the Taiwan dealer’s hired glam models. Looks like this is what they do here. I saw similar things done by some Eastern European manufacturers at airshows. Quite amusing to someone coming from the US.
 
Female glamour models at conventions are still very common in Asia. It once was very common at conventions in the U.S. and Europe up to about the 1990s. Some of the long running TV game shows such as the Wheel of Fortune and The Price is Right within the USA still use glamour women as display models.

I remember when automotive racing, boat racing, air racing, and motorcycle racing events in the USA would have a "Race Queen." A female glamour model that would kiss the winner of the racing event.

UNid Something good could have been done I think!! As I already told you at the time, the lines are there👍 okay who knows maybe in a little while!!
 
Abid, I hope you told them that the new AR1s come with the GWS Gyro Warning System, a valuable addition for new pilots.

Hi Mike
Yes they know. There is actually no legalized gyroplane and no legal gyroplane pilot in Taiwan. All that is being worked on now. I will be in Florida day after tomorrow. Just landed in California and as luck would have it, on the last day got food poisoning probably from some soy milk that I should have probably not have had.

Hi Wayne
I landed tonight in LA and am staying in a motel overnight in Chino Hills.
I am not feeling that great and am missing seeing my son as rebellious as he behaves :). I am also in the middle of getting SilverLight Aviation back owned by me 100% from investment majority owners. So I think I am going to head back this time. I also need to really think about compose comments on MOSAIC. I am thinking FAA needs to really think about wsc, gyroplanes, ppc and see if a club model like UK has with LAA and BMAA will be better suited to manage these aircraft as FAA has few resources knowledgeable and comfortable with them. It is clear they are ok with airplanes taking them to even 4 seats and no weight limit while not doing so for others because they are kind of out of their element.

Added:
Training should still remain as a FAA granted license. I would make some changes in requirements to be a sport pilot but that can be accomplished via PTS changes. 20 hours for a cast majority of people except the very young ones simply isn’t adequate to be safe.
Perhaps the burden of renewing examinerships should be checked with clubs too. FAA literally has no one remaining qualified to truly checkout examiners in WSC and gyroplanes to my knowledge currently in Oklahoma City. Why they don’t hire a properly qualified person for the job is beyond me but it’s clear it isn’t a priority for them or they would have knowing current people were going to retire.

They do the same thing in the Mainland, Japan, and Korea. Apparently it's an East Asian thing.
