Gyrocopter training Pretoria

Postby nomie » Tue Nov 03, 2015 5:29 pm

Hi,

After a few years of procrastinating I finally want to start my gyro-copter training.

Are there any schools / instructors close to Pretoria? I have been to Springs airfield etch but I feel all the driving will kill it for me.

Thanks for any info (^^) ,

He can also sell you a share on a gyro-if you don't wanna buy one (!!) .

For some reason I feel uncomfortable sharing anything that is safety critical (**)

Thank you for the information. Will give him a call.

Nomie, why not take a week or 2 leave and go down to the Cape and do some awesome flying/training with Greg Vos? Beautiful part of the world, lots of different scenarios great for training and then you also have a great guy looking after you for a few weeks vhpy
To fly is Heavenly but to Hover is Divine!

Now that is tempting. And he did promise to teach me if I buy his new one when he sells it! Now if only the boss can be convinced somehow :wink:
