The new website is now active but is a work in progress as I try to gain access to archives and members only materials.

Work to be done but all in WordPress so easy to make changes. Site does not need to be taken down as changes are made.

It didn't work for me Bobby at 19:21 Z of Google chrome.
It worked on Microsoft Edge.

I don't know how to clear out my browser cache Bobby.
I just tried it again on Google Chrome and it still didn't work.

I talked to support at Counterman and he walked me through clearing cache. Now I get it on Google Chrome. Good job!!!
Thank you for your hard work.
I feel like the PRA is on the road to recovery with people like you helping.

Some of the flight instructors are a little out of date.
I know two on the list who are not currently instructing.
I suspect it would take someone to simply call all the numbers.
I am in the middle of trying to get The Predator ready for training after being down for four months so I am not volunteering.
I might be available in a week if you are not able to find someone quicker.

Thanks, I knew some of the info was dated but was more concerned with getting the site back up. Will be cleaning up and adding as I go, any info appreciated.

A work in progress I know.... But FINALLY !!!! I feel we have something to build upon that will support and grow our community for years to come!
Something we can be proud of!

Thanks, this is all about our community. Hoping we can bring things back to where they were. The photo to me expresses what PRA stands for.

Great job. If I can help in any way, let me know.

Now some updating of CFIs that I know about
Don Bradley in California no longer instructs in gyroplanes. He is too busy instructing in airplanes and working as an engineer at Intel
Aston Kinsey in Florida has not instructed in a few years now
Galen Geigley in Michigan does not instruct in gyroplanes anymore

Not sure Desmond Butts can travel anywhere anytime any longer. Too busy flying transport for a job.
