:usa2:Metter Georgia flyinn APRIL 7th 2012 :usa2:
Is having a flyinn again and I would like to invite member of the Wrens gang down to help promote gyro's a little farther south in my neck of the woods. This is a young eagles flyinn. For the past 2 years I have been the only gyro at the show and would like some help showing people the fun and enjoyment of flying in a gyro. Also they will be serving lunch / hamburgers and hotdogs to all the pilots in the flyinn.

Thank you!

you can't miss the airport since it is right beside interstate 16
If you can make it please let me know.....last year I had 1 guy show up from the forum (Grant) he was flying his new FW plane.

Too few to mention
That's about 5 hours drive for me if I start from my home and almost 7 from Valkaria where I hangar. I don't promise anything but I will consider if all things go well and if the stars align properly OK?

How is it you are hooked up with Metter, Georgia?
My grandmother lived there for years just a block away from Michael Guido.

RayPierce : Not hook up with them just help out with them. My father lives some 10 miles SE of the airport. Also the chapter I joined in Ga. likes to help out here. The first year I went no one had ever see a gyro up close and the kids well let's just say they couldn't believe it would fly.
So each year I have been asked to come back. I like the comments I get from the FW guys...

My dad has since move into my grandmother farm house that he grew up. He is not farming the 270 acres but leases the farming right out to pay the taxes on the farm to keep it going. Out of the 270 acres I own 2 acres with I have setup for my mother to live on to help her live just a little easier also.
I also lived in Claxton, GA after I got out of the US army, but since there is not to many good jobs there I move over here to Bluffton, SC where I have worked the same job the past 29 years ( Golf Cart mechanic) for a resort here on Hilton Head island.
I do remember Hearing "The seed from the Sower" also when I would visit my grandmother's house....He just passed a few years ago!




Come on guys (Barry, Ron, Gary, and a few others )

Not yet. I have to get an EGT gauge. I'm going to completely redo the fuel system. Re-torque the prop bolts etc. Replace tubes in the tires....

I am about 1.5 hours drive from the south.
I will try to come with my Van Craft Lightning.
It will be a static display as I am not fully fledged yet.

Thought I would just remind everyone that I am trying to get the gyro's started around the area and your help would be a positive impact on some of the younger people....:yo:

Thanks

April 7th at 10:00am at the Metter, GA airport

April 7th at 10:00am at the Metter, GA airport

Next weekend is the fly inn and I was wanting to put this out there again to ask any of you that could please help me promote the sport down in this area. In the pass 2 years I have been the only person that has shown up in a gyro.

I love the sport of flying and would ask some of you that are close to the area to please think about it, your help would be gratifying to so many young lives….. Please think about it.

I only have 1 person that said he would try his best to make it.

Metter, Georgia next to I-16 at the Metter exit you can’t miss the airport. Free lunch to all!


Again thank you for your help and support

Metter, Ga fly inn

Metter, Ga fly inn

:director:Only a few days until the flyin is here:director:........:yo:

I know it is Easter weekend also and 3 days weekend so I guess this is why I have not had one person to say they are coming. I maybe they won't make the same mistake next year.

Had a great day, great weather and some good wind, at the fly inn had one other gyro show up to help out...Thank you!.

Oh I had to cut my flying short due to a fuel leak in the fuel line, looked like an elect. burn but nothing close by to do it.....not sure whan it happened but it did not happen while I was flying. got to put another 1.2 hrs on it.
