Re: Gyro project - Advice needed

Hi Mynard, Can you confirm your Sycamore is serial number SYCA0025 ? If so first registered in July 2001 - Avdex suggests it is still registered. "ZU-JSB" was previously earmarked for SYCA 0011 - this became ZU-VIV but was damaged beyond repair in a rollover in 2000 - hopefully you've not got this m...

""Do you maby know who it was?""


Hi - I think you might be referring to the Calidus collision with a parked MTOsport in the Eastern Cape on 19th May

Re: ZU Calidus in the UK

I wonder if this Calidus has ever been to South Africa ? I've found photos of it on the WWW in Spain in 12.11, and in Romania in 2013 Registered in 10.11 to an investment company. Anybody seen this machine ( it's grey ) on the ramp/in a hanger in RSA ? photo here http://www.myaviation.net/search/pho...

ZU Calidus in the UK

Hi


I've been told that Calidus ZU-RHF is currently in the UK - nice to see but it's a long way from home.

Seen at Wellsbourne near Stratford Upon Avon last weekend.

Anybody know if it's here for a tour or has it been sold on to the UK ?


Cheers

Re: Rotortec Clouddancer finally being shipped

Hi "OK" Thanks for your reply - it certainly sounds like a tragic event - imagine ordering a new gyro and then nearly killing yourself and destroying that same brand new gyro just after receiving it. I will keep a look out for the BFU report in due course - I appreciate it may take many months to ap...

Re: Rotortec Clouddancer finally being shipped

Hi I understand there was a gyrocopter accident at Dahlem-Binz, Germany on 28th May 2014 ( yesterday ). The photos show a complete burn out - just the rotors remaining. A news link tells us that the 71 year old pilot suffered serious injuries. The rotors appear to be white with red blocks - similar ...
