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

What a great morning. The weatherman said to expect high winds. but they remained manageable. Scott and I enjoyed a great flight out and I returned tailing him in 15069 as he flew Charlie Golf back. How often do you get to fly as a flight of eight gyroplanes!? Thank you Robert and everyone else who joined the carbon fiber gaggle.

Because of the added distance from Boerne, I may stop at Taylor for fuel and then continue with the group. Will unleaded fuel be available at T74?
