Gyro's and Licensing by TM

I absolutely will get gyro traing before I fly (I'm also a motorcyclist who learned to ride in 1978 by making two circles around the dealer's parking lot on...

Dumb Question by JohnO

Looking for information regarding baloon/helicopter experiment by wavy
I know the video was not fake, but I have no information about it. I believe I recorded it from a compilation of aircraft accidents but it was from 20 years ago. I unfortunately dont have the tape anymore. The vehicle, I believe - was put together by some contractor for the forestry service. It...
