I had a great flight yesterday in our Ercoupe(picture from yesterday attached). The winds were calm in the early morning but within an hour things started to get bumpy down low which is less pleasurable for me in my middle years. I love flying fast down low and cranking things around but for some reason I don't look as forward to flying when I know I'm going to get kicked around all the time. So I was once again reminded of the option to sell the Ercoupe and learn how to fly rotary wings in the hope it will be more fun. So with the wife's blessing, I booked a flight from Sacramento to Tampa next month for Benson days and I'm hoping to get some instruction and fly in as many potential different gyros to see if I can find a tandem that feels right. I started looking at Hotels and both the Tropicana and the Best Western still have rooms so I'm going to book something tonight. I don't know any of you so hopefully I can hang out and make some new friends for the few days I'll be in town. I'm arriving Wednesday night and leaving Saturday afternoon. See you soon!
