It was quite a sight, seeing eight gyros lined up in front of The Black Walnut Cafe at North Houston Regional Airport in Conroe.  The group included three Magni M 16’s, two Magni M24’s, an Autogyro Calidus, an American Ranger, and an Autogyro Cavalon. It was a good time with friends, family, and fellow gyro pilots. Thanks for following. ENJOY THE JOURNEY!

Black Walnut Cafe at KCXO Airport in Conroe is the perfect spot for a GyroTrip breakfast. We’ll depart T74 Taylor at 7:30 AM, arriving in Conroe shortly after 9:00.  Setting aside an hour or so for breakfast and to watch planes take off and land, we should be back in Taylor by 1:00 PM. KCXO is class DELTA with two runways (14/32 and 01/19).  We can park on the ramp at Galaxy FBO, just outside the restaurant. This should be a good trip. Thanks for following.

HOUSTON to FT WORTH (March 30, 2018)

March 30, 2018 — April 5, 2018

AFTER THE TRIP

You never know what’s in store when you head out on a GyroTrip.  Dayton and I departed T74 – Taylor at about 7:00 AM Friday morning and flew down to KTME – HOUSTON EXEC to pick up Chandler. Weather was a bit chilly, but almost perfect. We departed HOUSTON EXEC for a 45 minute flight to KCXO – NORTH HOUSTON REGIONAL where we had a fantastic breakfast at THE BLACK WALNUT CAFE, located on the top floor of the Airport FBO. From Conroe, we made our way to KFWS – FT WORTH SPINKS airport, arriving at about 2:30.  Our rental car was gassed up ready when we landed.  We made it to  UNCLE JULIOS between the lunch and dinner rush and were able to kick back and enjoy good food and good company. Downtown FT WORTH was not too crowded which made for an unhurried walk around SUNDANCE SQUARE,  ending with drinks at the REATA rooftop bar and a steak dinner in the downstairs restaurant. 

We were up early SATURDAY morning and drove to MONTGOMERY STREET CAFE to plan the day over sausage, eggs and pancakes. Strong south winds were forecast  so we opted out of flying to LLANO and flew to T74 – TAYLOR for lunch with the FAM at HIT THE SPOT CAFE in Hutto.

About 4 O’Clock, Dayton headed north to McGregor to meet Brittny, I flew back to Houston to drop off Chandler. On the solo flight back to Taylor, I thought about what a blessed experience it is to be able to fly gyros across the country, experiencing food, fun and life with family.

Yes, this one was as good as it gets!

BEFORE THE TRIP

We had a change of plan for our Gonzales, LA trip. Most of the restaurants in the New Orleans area are closed for Good Friday, including the one’s we wanted to visit. So, we decided to fly to Ft. Worth instead. We’ll fly down to KTME in Houston Friday morning, pick up Chandler, then fly to KCXO in Conroe for breakfast, then on to KFWS Ft. Worth. We’ll depart KFWS-Ft Worth around NOON on Saturday and make our way to Cooper’s BBQ in Llano. Weather looks good, so it should be a good trip.
