Well Tim, I think I'm going to try something bigger, but I'm not sure what model I want. My gyro can carry a 300 plus size man or a whole family depending what country your from....lol! I want to look around some more for something really big.

Bob,
Hopefully you're selling so you can upgrade to something better.
Tim,
Bob and that Gyro were a pretty good combination, I don't know what he would get unless it was a two place machine or maybe a Butterfly.
Bob , I can't believe you are selling that machine. It has been a great flying gyro all the times I have see you in it. Good luck and keep us posted on what you are looking into.

What I am asking for the gyro?

How much are you asking for the Air Command?
Hey Guys,
I just put $6,500.00 into it and I paid $8,000.00 for it in 2003. I suppose $10,000.00 would be nice, seeing that its almost new again. It flies great and its really strong. I can go 70 mph with a full 5 gallon tank and cruse 55 mph and I weigh over 310 lbs. Thats pretty good for a 582. Its built for a heavy guy, but it will haul butt for someone lighter. I really doubt if I could get off the ground in a 503, that would be good for crow hopping at full power, and I can forget about 447 unless it was around 80 degrees at sea level after a cool rain.

That's a GREAT deal for somebody!!! I suspect it won't be available for very long.

$10,000 seems like a really good deal to me too. I've seen how well you take care of your gyro.

Bob, I am a new gyro dreamer. Just joined PRA and the Lone Star Chapter. I also weight right at 300 and have had a heck of a time finding a gyro that can support me. I am very interested in the SparrowHawk III but when I contacted AG they said that it would only support 240 lbs. per seat.

Can I get a phone number, I would like to talk to you about purchasing your gyro, or you can contact me at 832-473-0042. I live in Richmond, Tx and could pick it up.

Thanks,

sold it today

sold it today

Well Guys,
I am taking some time off before I build my new gyro. The new owner (ken) is excited and pleased. I flew it for them and and Joe looked it over Ken and I made the deal. I am not out of the sport. I just want someone else to enjoy my aircraft as much as I have. I was only flying it twice a week anyway. I will be back in a year or so.
