I'm researching the Hornet as a means to get flying again after losing my medical. I have a private pilot rating with a glider add-on. Perhaps 430 hours in fixed wing, another 70 or so flying gliders out of Minden, NV. I have completed approx. 70% of a full scale Graham Lee Niieport 17, but sold my Rotec engine after losing the medical. Most bummed, The hornet is just about perfect for my flying needs as FAR 103 compliant that I can take off and land in my 10 acre back yard. I have the Hornet plans Ver. 13.2 as a start point. Any tips, pointers, etc. will be much appreciated. If anyone knows of a autogyro flying clubin the Central Valley (Visalia/Fresno) of California I would love to get in touch.
