Birdy, I love the way you Aussies talk. I think if I ever get around to it, I would love to go to your country and spend a month or two there.

Raphael,
How about stopping by Bensen Days for a couple days? It's the week before Sun-n-Fun in Wachula, FL (40 miles South of Lakeland).

To Tim,

Yes ! Never thought about that !
Well, we need now make some contact to help us there, as we'll have to be there a few days before with the machine, assemble it, fly it to make sure the trip was ok to it. Then manage rent a car, trailer, B&B...not easy. And probably contact the organisation... we know nothing about Bensen Days. Well we'll see.. but we'll be proud to be there. The Xenon i guess would make non stop demo flights...

You would be mad if you didn't get to Bensen Days going all that way and just down the road from S&F. I plan on being there 6-14 apl.

Raphael,
What dates will you arrive in the US with the Xenon? Is the Xenon being delivered to the Sun-n-Fun location? If you assembled it at Sun-n-Fun's airport you could fly it down to Wachula (40 miles ). A lot of people camp at Bensen Days. If you want to camp I'll provide a tent. Maybe we can get some other people to donate a couple sleeping bags for you. Camping will make it cheaper for you. If you want to trailer the Xenon maybe we could find someone to help with that also.



PS. The mark on the map for Bensen Days is not the exact location. Just a tag to show you what town it's in.

I am trying to get some Brazilians to Bensen Days, there are lots going to Sun-N-Fun and they never heard of BD.
So, I joined a friend that owns ISA Intercambio (interchange) and we are working a package: tickets, hotel, transportation, show fees and guide
I picked up a hotel that sits midways to Lakeland and Wauchula, so far only 3 confirmed (4 with me, but call me local) .
I may include your group on the terrestrial part of the deal.
thanks

Very nice. We now have to get the best way to transport the Xenon.
Do you know what about my possibility to fly there ? No problems with my french license and french machine ?

If you got the OK to fly at S&F you should be able to fly it to BDs.
I am looking forward to seeing you and that gyro.

No, i don't have ok to S&F...my point of view is that my license is international as long as i fly with my own machine.
