Anyone considering ordering a new TAG gyroplane for 2023...we have a shipment container leaving Sydney in February with room for another kit! Order soon ..the current Aussie $ rate makes our gyro quite competitive starting @ about $85,000 ...depending how you customize with options! Call Chris @ 316 435 2091..for more details & custom quote! We had a customer unable to go ahead due to job loss ...with a red machine like mine(started build) ...but ALL standard color options ready to go! Delivery will be at Blum TX anticipated about 6 weeks after sailing from Sydney...and our experienced owner Tim Weiland based there will be able to help with build finalization and preparation to airworthy & contacts for the AW inspection!

I've flown with Tim in his yellow (with USMC emblems) Titanium. Anyone buying one of those gyros will be in excellent hands with Tim's help. I was in the back so Tim would have full instruments.

I wish I could make it work Chris.
I love the way the TE flies and she has wonderful wind protection compared to most tandem gyroplanes I have flown.
My timing is off.
The money is building up, it is just not here yet.
Maybe this time next year.

I was thinking of putting a yellow unit in the container (...minus engine )for you Vance ....wish my White N488TE inventory one sold last year...so I had some funds to "float" your TAG project! I saw RANS had extra 912 ULS units for excess inventory sale & now Craig is doing the Steve Paulet kit upgrades to turbo /tune the 912ULS for the 135-145HP SUPER- SIMPLE high-power engine!

I love the way the TAG flies.

When I last flew with Christine I experimented with most of the common learner errors and found the response gentle enough to talk through.

It has been down into the forties at the Santa Maria public airport and the increased wind protection over other open gyroplanes would be a welcome relief. Somehow as I get older I get colder. If it dips into the 30s my radio calls become harder to understand.

As I and my clients get older and fatter the extra room makes for a more pleasant experience.

I have room for a complete instrument panel in the back and that will allow me to be more confident when flying from the back.

Each time I imagine my financial house is in order reality intrudes.

I seem to be headed in the right direction.

I don't know how much longer I will be able to give flight instruction so I don't want to say to myself, just wait for a year.

At 73 a year could easily be 30% of the time I have left to fly although everything does seem to be holding up well.

I have to admit when I read about an accident pilot in their seventies I tend to imagine someone not at the top of their game.

I feel fortunate that I have these choices to make.

I have been told that after 75 insurance will be harder to get.
