Gyrocopter man resumes world record gyrocopter flight in the Philippines

Hemos seguido las aventuras de Norman Surplus desde que comenzó a volar su autogiro para dar la vuelta al fin del mundo. Reproducimos íntegramente el email que acabamos de recibir sobre él:
 
 
Norman Surplus who is attempting to be the first person to fly a gyrocopter around the world has resumed his flight after being stalled for a year in the Philippines due to bad weather. This is a particularly challenging undertaking because of the aircraft's open cockpit harking back to the early days of flying in the 20's.  This is further complicated because the unusual nature of his aircraft means aviation authorities often are perplexed about how to handle it. This combined means that his flying is subject to weather and flight permissions on going.

Norman enters Japanese airspace later this week and he will be the first person to fly the length of the country in modern times because of tight restrictions on gyrocopter flying.  They are usually restricted to within a few miles of their airfield in Japan but he has been given special and exceptional permission to fly long distances.
