Hello, I live in the North central part of NC just south of Danville, VA. I currently fly paramotor and I'm looking for someone to train me to fly gyros. I intend to start ground school soon in pursuit of a sports pilot license or a private. If anyone can offer advice I'd greatly appreciate it! Thanks!

Barry, you absolutely made my day! I appreciate so much your quick response to my post. I'd love to come out to see you the weekend after Labor Day - I can come out either the 7th or 8th if one of those days would work for you. You're about two hours from me. Just let me know the best date and time and I'll put it on my calendar.
Thanks again for the post Barry!

Barry, I can't thank you and the Barnstormers enough for the fabulous welcome mat you put out for me yesterday! That was the most fun I've had in a very long time. Thanks so much for the ride in the "SnowBird" and all the invaluable information I received. I'm thoroughly sold on Gyro's and I look forward to spending time with you and the Barnstormers in the near future. You truly are a great ambassador for the Gyro sport! Thanks for the T-shirt and welcoming me into the family!!

Join the facebook page for the PRA. Hook up with tim O conner.
He does online ground school.
$200-$300 total i think.
Also sign up for “The Gyropedia”.
Phil Harwood has excellent material to get you in the gyro frame of mind.
Educational and fun.
You will find a lot of knowledge available.

Go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/115014588118/

link to the PRA Facebook page.

You will see the Link there for Tim O'Connors online Gyroplane training Course
Additional comments. I started with the Gleim Sport Pilot class and it was best prep for FAA Test. Also ok best for general knowledge. Use that and get past the Test. Then take Tim's on line class, great tie in to the curriculum with focus on the Gyro. Then, once you start flight instruction tie in with Gyropedia.

Will make more sense as you progress.
