I spent some time this week with Ron Menzie in Arkansas. I was enjoying the numerous photos on the walls of his hanger and was asking him questions. He mentioned that he had started flying in 1968. I said, "do you mean this is your 50th year in aviation?" Ron looked off in the distance and said, "would that be right." I know Ron has been a mentor, friend and instructor to many members on the forum. He has served the gyro community in ways few can match.

I now consider him a mentor, friend and instructor as well.

Please join me in wishing Ron a very special 50th anniversary.

Ron gave me my first gyroglider ride. It was winter 1970 and I was fourteen!

Ron is, of course, "da man."
