Welcome Mike. With your experience I think the first order of business should be to promote you to a rank higher than newbie. Let's hope the forum can live on long enough for you to convey what I am sure is a vast collection of knowledge.

Welcome!!Hi All, my name is John Heffernan from County Clare, Ireland and have just joined the forum.
I fly an ELA07S 914 turbo gyro and am restoring a Bensen B8M gyro. I have been lucky enough to have flown other gyros including MTO3, MTOSport, Magni M24 and Magni M16. This forum has been a great source of knowledge and inspiration for me with respect to all aspects of gyro flying, training, maintenance and design. I have met the most interesting and diverse people through gyro flying. I very much appreciate the work of the forum owners, administrators and contributors. I really hope this forum continues to operate.
Safe flying, John H.
Welcome to the Rotary Wing Forum Aerofoam.
Please get training before you even just go out to get the rotors up to speed.
Many people have come to grief exploring gyroplanes without flight instruction and did not get to go home after the mishap.
My recollection is that a Rotax 503 needs to be rebuilt every three hundred hours or five years; whichever comes first. I am not a Rotax enthusiast so you should look this up for yourself.
I wish you all the best on your gyroplane adventure.
Hi Aerofoam- have you ever flown a RC gyrocopter? Sounds like really cool background!
