Gyroplane FAI Records (set in Magni M22 "Missing Link")
Helicopter FAI Records (set in R44)
Two most memorable record-setting flights:
FAI # 1775 Distance without landing - El Paso, TX to Cape Girardeau, MO
This flight was on November 10, 2015. The weather was quite cool at mycruising altitude of 7,500 msl. Total flight time was 10 hours, 8 minutes. My legs were so cold upon arrival at Cape that I could barely stand without assistance. It was quite exciting to realize my dream of flying farther non-stop on a gyroplane than anyone else onthe planet!
FAI #17829 Distance over a closed circuit without landing - Cape Girardeau, MO to Longview, Texas and back
This was a record originally set by Jsan Boulet of France on July 2, 1953 with a speed of 103.81 km/h. My performance more than doubled his speed (222.18 km/h)
