the words every pilot should commit to memory
From time to time, RAF and Gyro Nation members come up with questions they would like the answers to. Sometimes they ask questions in fun and other times they really want information. We've done Six surveys. One was for fun, the Toast for Gyros survey, and two were for gathering information to help us organize our plans a little better as well as to understand what you are doing. Two e-mail surveys were taken by hundreds of gyro enthusiasts.
