Just for the love of it

Back into 2015. Went on a long cross country with my Calidus yesterday. Going to do it again today. Just for the love of it. There is nothing that beats the exhilaration of being up there with the birds in the gentle breeze and just being high above and away from the maddening crowd in your own priv...

Re: SAGPA AGM & NORTH / SOUTH 2014

Was a walk in the park and we are safely in Kimberley. Tomorrow on to Carnarvon. Man oh man do these gyros just love the wind. Was gusting 38 and no effect what so ever on the Calidus. The 8 of us are having a ball. We are staying in a historic brothel. :shock: Yes you heared correctly. The dames ar...

Re: What to know when buying a Gyro

Hey guys! i have once again been out of circulation for some time and really missed the banter on the forum. I see posts are few and far between. We need a big event or something newsworthy or chatworthy to light the fires. Maybe the Botswana airshow next month? I believe 12 of us so far going? i wa...
