That’s great, I’ll add these to my list. Too often I’m he only gyro at some of the fly-ins I go to…but have always been well received. The only problem is all of the non-gyro pilots gathering around your machine…they are fascinated with gyros ;-)

On the ground, my wife can often hear people in the crowd say, “hey look the gyro’s getting ready to take off.”

Plus, even at crowded venues, they give gyros (rotorcraft) special consideration like right pattern…all to yourself. I was at a fly-in with hundreds of airplanes (all left traffic) and only one gyro. I had right traffic and was like having the whole airport to myself. I would not want to fly an airplane to these…to hectic.

My hope by sharing fly-in info is that we see more gyros at the fly-ins this year.
