very glad for you Jim its been a long time happening. I knew from the first time i flew with you you could get it done. just needed time and the right machine for it all to come together. Glad the Tag has had what was needed to fit the bill! You already had the skill just needed the practice!

Jim,

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! The longer and harder the journey, the sweeter the reward when you finally accomplish your goal. You have been a great example for all the rest of us. I am proud of your accomplishment and wish you many happy hours flying your Gyro and living your dream.
