Hopefully many here are following the awesome trips of two round the world trips with gyrocopters, flying together. The first is James Ketchal in a new Magni M16 who just started his trip in the UK, and the other is Norman Surplus, in GYROX the Autogyro MTO (the one with the terrible dangerous rotor blades , wink, wink) who is actually completing his trip started in 2015, after they have finally obtained clearance to fly across Russia. You can follow them on their websites and tracking sites.

They will also be at Oshkosh hopefully this July.
Also of note is that they have really opened up the trans-Russia route for future general aviators through their connections.
