After a 30 year pause, I am returning to the Gyro World. I bought a air command UL gyro kit in 1987, powered by a rotec engine. I built it over the course of about 3 weeks between college semesters, got some instruction, and then proceeded to fly it through 2 engine rebuilds. When it was time for its third engine rebuild I was in the service and didn't have time, so I parked in the barn. Due to life intervening, that is where it still sets. Now I finally have the time, space and $$ to finally get back to gyros. This time, I am going to get fully licensed and build an enclosed Gyro. Not sure of the type yet, was thinking of a Little Wing but from the time I started to think about returning till now, it appears no one makes the frames. I would like to get a kit to save some time in the build. I have a well equipped workshop and could do a plans built but that is a bit more than I want right now. For the past week, I have been going through the threads here, a lot of good information and thanks to all that take the time to post.
