Fly-in gyroplane

Fifty aircraft flew in and 273 people showed up for breakfast at the Red Deer Flying Club’s annual Fly In/Drive In Pancake Breakfast at the Skywings Aviation Hangar at the Red Deer Airport on Sunday. One of the more interesting aircraft was a gyroplane flown by Jon Pridie of Wetaskiwin, who is only one of two certified gyroplane instructors in Canada. He has been flying them since 1996. This particular model took two months to build, and this is his second one. In 2000, his first one was stolen.
