Breakfast at The Black Walnut Cafe – KCXO – Conroe Sat – June 23, 2018

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. ENJOY THE JOURNEY! -Bob
