If you have ever wanted to learn more about Gyroplanes and Sport Helicopters, come out to the the Bensen Days Gyroplane and Helicopter Fly-in in Wauchula Florida April 3rd-6th . Look for Victoria Rahming Flying Tours with Heli Aviation's R-66 Turbine. Check out the website below for more info. Rumor has it we may have a UH-60 Black hawk and maybe a Cobra drop in for a visit. see some of the best Gyroplane Pilot around demo their machines. Some of the Pilots that where doing Demo's with their Gyro's at Sun -N-Fun 2012 will be there showing the world just what a gyroplane can do.
Hope to see ya there!
Babette, If you get to Sun N Fun 2013 you should try to stay in the campground, that just makes the experience complete. You can easily attend the night time events too. There aren't as many as at Oshkosh but they do have some.
Babette, it seems to get better every year!
It was amazing!
My Goal - To Attend Sun n' Fun in 2013! Did everyone have great time?
Most favorite part of Sun N Fun so far this week?
As a former professional aircraft detailer (KSUS, Spirit Airport, Chesterfield MO) I can personally attest that the BuffPro reduced job time on brightwork easily by half. I went from a 3-step process with a rotary, and by hand with a finisher, to a single step process in most cases, and a 2-step in cases where the metal was severely damaged. Because you do not get swirls, you do not need to do the finishing step. When cutting through severe scratches, salt water stains, or oxidation, the swirl-free action meant the following step (polishing) went much faster. For brightwork, I recommend NuVite Metal Polish and the Wool Pad. For cutting, G6 Grade; for polishing (most cases, single step), C Grade. You do not need to finish with the S Grade as you will not get swirls or haze.
For paint, you can use BuffPro with a Polishing Pad and Flitz Metal & Paint Polish (works best as a paint polish as opposed to metal) to remove APU exhaust streaks, oil streaks on prop nacelles, and other stains very easily. And again, you do not need to finish because there are no visibile swirls afterwards.
You can also use a Finishing Pad with the BuffPro to apply glazes such as Aero-Glaze if you wish.
