Well, GA has reached the point in life he wants to play a little... and flying was his thing when he was younger, so lets see how one can fly on a budget...

Looked into owning a share of a Cessna or Piper...
Looked into renting from time to time...
Looked into volunteer flying...
None of those are gonna work.

Then my friend with a paraplane took me for a ride...
While I am not interested in flying under a parachute... the idea of a home-built sunny-Sunday 'ultra-light' seems reasonable (I learned that all small home built hobby flying machines are called untralights now).

Well after some reading, I think I am interested in a gyrocopter...

Anyone here know anything about them, have any experience with them, or have one to sell?
