Autogyro does not have Permission to Use Field

Joe Obermeyer snapped this picture of our neighbor’s autogyro on the field.

Like most aviation people I am fascinated by autogyros and I like to see these curious inventions flying. Unfortunately, they don’t have permission to operate out of our runway. The problem is liability. If anything goes wrong, we can be held at least partially liable. The pilot understands that he doesn’t have permission yet he continues to use the field because it is convenient to his home. When you see him or his wife at the field, remind him that he doesn’t have permission.
