AFTER THE TRIP
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!
BEFORE THE TRIP
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. ENJOY THE JOURNEY! -Bob
