After a False start to work today being Monday 22nd Dec. I dropped in to see what was going down at the Aerodrome quite a bit as the day went on.
Well Wayne turned up with Gyro Butterfly Aircraft Monarch Butterfly (a U.S design) ZK-YZM
He had a false start a while back so was back to try again.
The Assembly Stage
The lets get out and do it.
Couple of runs up and down RWY-34 getting used to how it handled.
Wind was dying started out as a Northerly moved round to the South end up eventually a South Easterly
The Gyro Flight Deck.
After a bit of Lunch the wind had died enough to use RWY-27 still testing and seeing how she handles.
Lift of was made on the previous run but I missed it. A short hop.
A more determined look and he was off.
Lift Off Imminent
There we go folks he's off.
Heading back to the Pit's passing RSR on the way back.
On returning to the Pits although keen to do some more Wayne called it a day he had achieved Flight time to pop it on the Trailer take her home check it out.
Good call as more than a few Aircraft ruined by pushing it rather than taking stock.
