The Colorado Rotorcraft Association (PRA chapter 38) held it's second Fly-In event of 2012 on Saturday 10-13.
The morning started with a pancake breakfast provided by members of EAA chapter 72. The north tie down area of Meadow Lake Airport next to the Airport Operations and Maintenance hangar was reserved for Rotorcraft. PRA 38 provided a coned off area for Rotor spin down separated from the spectators.
Rotorcraft filled the balance of the north area. Bruce McCombs displayed his 2 seat Little Wing autogyro, Frank Nelson had his 2 place Barnett, Dick Dougherty displayed his Gyrobee with the folding mast, Todd Rieck displayed and demonstrated his modified Air Command and Thomas Fernandez displayed and demonstrated his Gyrobee with the 582 Rotax.
Both Todd and Thomas made very slow passes into an increasing North wind that looked to the crowd watching like the gyros were flying in slow motion.
Our next Fly in event will be September 13-14-15th 2013.
