Never assume another individuals liability - Aviation is an exercise in risk assessment & NOTHING is SAFE

47 years ago my dad showed us kids an old film of a bunch of guys and my dad in an old Steward Davis Jet Packet having a ball.

"See those guys? Half of them are dead" I've laid to rest old bosses and friends who did nothing close to hazardous or illegal.

That's what aviation is, a risk

Hi Terry on your Dominator, are you comfortable with welding ? And have you made firm decision on the
power plant? gyro's generally are built around the engine choice, with weldments makes it difficult to change your mind
once you start the build. I can get laser cut parts based on the 500 series Rotax. and caster front gear.
Hi John:

From all the talk on the forums, I am thinking the PRA site is still in work and logins are disabled for now.
I have tried to log in using my member number, and password, but I am getting nowhere.
If global web support is you, then you must be very busy and I should be more patient.

I am concerned that I may have done something wrong and have been banned.

I just saw this. Thank you for telling me.
I've set your account to active for now.
We are in the twilight zone running 3 databases at the same time to create a new website from one of them eventually.
I will need to search for the last payment from a 4th independent financial house database and let you know.

Howdy Rhoadsrunner, wondering if this is you Kevin? & if so did you sell the pittbull Gyro on the barry ... which is now listed in the for sale section here? Thanks & regards Dave
Welcome to the forum. My name is Steve Greenwell. I would refer you to Mark Sprigg. He is a Magni dealer and trains out of Jack Edwards at Orange Beach. He is selling more gyros than any other dealer in the world I believe and is training 8 hrs a day lately. He actually needs another CFI. Search Gulf Coast Magni. If you haven't flown a Magni, Mark would be happy to show you.

You are rightly concerned about the insurance cost. Many fly without it. Its one thing to fly in open rural areas its entirely a different risk environment to fly over congested areas or heavily wooded mountainous areas. Mark actually was meeting today with one of only 3 brokers who write ins. on gyros. There is an effort to establish a stronger training protocol the ins cos. can get behind.

Hard to believe folks would invest in these aircraft and then have insurance.

Before the "Euro designs" ushered in the current state of Gyros this tiny corner of aviation attracted the low budget do-it-yourself pilots. There are some masterful builders and enthusiasts within the ranks but unfortunately budget mindedness still lingers on. However the performance and styling are certainly attracting a newer type of owner. But the training does need further evolution.
Are you selling MGL instruments? What is the price on an E-1 engine monitor?

Electronic parts are taking longer to get parts, for my college sponsored electronic projects and for MGL they have emailed me telling us it may take longer than normal for out of stock orders.

John, I have the infinity E-3 engine monitor. I was thinking of upgrading to one of the new color instruments. The Vega EMS-1 would drop in if the electrical pinouts are the same, and it used the same sensors. Rewiring wouldn't really be that difficult as it would just be cut and splice. The Blaze EMS-2 would have a bigger display for my old eyes. I'd have to redo my panel though.
Hi Eric.
I would really appreciate a copy of the Bensen Training Manual PDF.
Mostly academic, as I'll soon be training in my own MTO Sport.
But surely there must be something to learn from reading it.
With the weather we have had this year, I have even considered building
my Gyrobee as a glider and teather it to get the feel of rotor handling....

Hi Brian, Would you happen to know the angles of movement fore/aft and laterally of the Mini 500 joystick?

I'll measure today and let you know. My parking spot is not totally level so all I can give you is total travel degrees.

Hi Brian, sounds good. Thanks a million!

I recorded the results and would have sworn I posted them for you but I just saw I never did it. Sorry. Here's what I found.
Stick travel full left to full right 35 degrees. Fore and aft was 42 degrees.
No pilot would move the cyclic to full travel in
flight unless they were in a panic but just KNOWING that mechanically, you could exceed critical AOA by
accidentally flopping the cyclic is a little scary.
Good afternoon Curtis, I will be driving a rental car to Mentone. If you can find someone who will allow us to fly their gyroplane I can give you training although we will head off to Fulton County airport seven miles to the south west. My insurance does not cover their aircraft and it is not unusual for training exercises to be a little hard on a gyroplane. I am also happy to give ground instruction.
All_In, I'm into Powered Parachutes. Everyone I've talked to at the field, not only Powered Parachutes but also Powered Paragliders have said they want one. When this comes out, I think you're going to have a LOT of customers on your hands. Please keep the website up to date on what's happening. Everyone at the field keeps asking. Thank you Sir.
Vance:
I saw your post on the Rotary Forum about you coming to the 2020 PRA convention. Will you be flying the Predator in?
Will you be available for some training time? OR do you want to relax and talk shop with other enthusiasts?

Thanks

Hello
Curtis Scholl here. I am in Saline MI but go to the PRA convention in Mentone as it is the closest venue for Gyros for me.
Thank you for responding to my plea for a CFI at Mentone 2020 this year. If you do come to the PRA Convention, I look forward to starting some instruction with you.
Hey Mr. Beaty
Sending em back in the morning. I've been scanning and drinking beer.
Many Thanks
Ben
