If I was, then that would the way to go. Proven design, basically an autogyro with a nice cabin and a drive shaft to the wheels. So much better than trailing X feet of aircraft behind you through traffic with folded winds wobbling over ever pot hole...

1. Captain, if the problem is not entered into the technical logbook.........then the aircraft does not have a problem.
2. And, if you have time to write the fault on a napkin and attach to it to the yoke.........you have time to write it in the tech log....see point 1.

If I were a rich man, a Pitcairn PCA-2 Autogiro replica I would build at home, sweet home. Mexican weather is perfect for open cockpits & skydive (plus an imperative hangar/shop for occasional work, rain & sun protection)
