Wednesday, April 4, 2018 - 8:00am to Saturday, April 7, 2018 - 9:00pm

Bensen Days is one of the largest and oldest Gyroplane and Rotorcraft events in the US.  It is sponsored by Sunstate Wing & Rotor Club.  For more information on Bensen Days 2018, visit http://www.bensendays.us.com

The event takes place each year at Wauchula Municiple Airport (KCHN) in Wauchula, Florida.  It is generally scheduled the week just just before or just after the Sun-N-Fun Lakeland, Florida general aviation event so enthusiasts may visit both events back-to-back.

Weekend's At the Cedartown Hangar

If you missed this weekend at the Cedartown Hangar, you missed this fine group of gyronauts lunching at Home Town Pizza in Rockmart.  You also missed notable visits from Ron Iaconis, John Morgan and some others not in the picture who either left before lunch or arrived afterward.  Bob even showed up with his Zodiac and a guest.

2016 Wrens Fall Fly-In

Wrens Georgia Fly-In 2015

Date: 

Friday, September 16, 2016 - 1:45pm to Sunday, September 18, 2016 - 12:00pm


WRENS is a Fly-in event held at the airport in Wrens, GA (65J) in the fall of each year. It was originally known as Rotors-Over-Carolina (ROC) when it was held in the South Carolina, but moved to Georgia in 1998. As an EAA event, it draws some fixed-wing aircraft, but it has always been primarily a rotorcraft and gyroplane gathering. Wrens typically attracts gyroplane enthusiasts from the Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Carolina rotorcraft clubs.

Wrens Fly-In 2015 -- Wow!

Wrens Fly-In 2015

Yep, Wow!  This year's fly-in at Wrens, Georgia was the best in years. Fun and safety joined hands with a load of gyroplanes and participants from across the Southeast and even a machine flown in from Connecticut.  I counted at least 6 machines that flew in over 100 miles. Of those 6, at least half flew many times that number of miles.

Saturday Hangin' at the Hangar

This Saturday (along with most Saturdays when the weather is nice) some of us will be meeting at the Hangars and (4A4) Cedartown, Polk County Airport from about 9:00AM to noon (+/_).  There is no particular agenda, and some gyroplane flying may or may not occur.  Still, it ends up a good time.  Guests are welcome! Come early.  Seating in front of the big fan is limited.

It's that time again!  Yes, a month AFTER Wrens fly-in (Georgia) and before the cold weather.  The next instance of the fabulous Carolina Barnstormers Fall Fly-In.  Carolina gyroplane hospitality at its very finest.  

Anson County Airport (KAFP) in Wadesboro, North Carolina once again plays host to an invasion of rotorwing aircraft.  Expect groups from Peach State Rotorcraft, Sunstate Wing & Rotor Club as well as other groups across the Southeast to attend.
