Ok....I was a long time Private pilot but I'm a newbie to gyros. At this point I like what I see with the JK-2 Nano. I even drove to Bensen Days in Fla. to see the two Nanos that were there. I think people are and will be excited with this Gyro. I have done a massive amount of research about Gyros and then there are the multitude of Youtubes about Gyros and the JK-2 Nano. One thing that has been impressed on me is the fact that Gyros have different flight characteristics than fixed wing aircraft.....and the take-off and landing has different procedures. Many have mentioned that initial training is virtually a neccessity and I am in the process of getting with a CFI in order to feel confident if and when I take that first solo flight in a Nano. I will also be very interested in getting some feedback about the flight characteristics and stability of the Nano. To state again, at this point, ending up as an owner of the Nano is still a possibility.

Gyropedia is an excellent start.
From what I have read many fixed wing pilots really like Gyros. Like I have said before I plan to get the feel of gyros with a CFI but there is always that first solo. How well we remember that first time when our lives are in our own hands. I will never forget my three takeoffs and landings in an Aeronca.
I'm a long time fixed wing pilot also. About 1600 hours in all sorts. I have flown gyros also and am itching to get back into them. I'm going to Oshkosh to see the Nano.
