This year’s party will be on December 8th, starting at 7 PM. Cost is $25.00 per person. Tickets are only being sold at the Flying W Flight Operation desk this year. Please purchase your tickets as soon as possible. Mindy needs to make the final arrangements for the party several days in advance.
Flying Auto Gyros
When Freeflight Aviation pilots want to fly somewhere they don’t let a little thing like Frankenstorm stop them.
On the Saturday before Hurricane Sandy stopped by for a visit, 5 different planes carrying 13 people went on an adventure to Bay Bridge Airport in Maryland (W29).
Besides the great flight of about an hour, there was the fun of flying the pattern along side theBayBridge.
Once there we were greeted by Terri Rose who manages Chesapeake Sport Pilot & Auto Gyro USA, the real reason for our trip. Some of us were going to try our hand at flying an Autogyro. What’s an Autogyro you might ask? It’s not an airplane but it’s not quite a helicopter either. It has flying chracteristics of both. CFI Bob Snyder took seven of us on a demo flight. Tyler Singh, Marianna Catrullo, Gary Growney, Chris Colacci, Dan Dellarova, Eugene Timashev & myself, all agreed it was an awesome experience. An Autogyro endorsement is possible after about 7-10 hours of dual training.
If you’re looking for a place to fly and want to try something new, head on down to Bay Bridge. Say hello to Terri and Bob if you are there.
