Welcome Dave Yant!

Doesn't Dave Look Good In PINK...
HoneyBee G2 is thrilled that Dave Yant has joined our Team!

Dave brings a great background of rotorcraft & aviation experience to our Team and it is great to have him on-board. His role will oversee all manufacturing, kit shipments and builder completions.  His role with HoneyBee G2 will even extend to oversight into the world of Gyroplane Training Centers International beginning in the Spring.  

Dave is not only a great rotorcraft mechanic but of equal importance to our Team is that he flies gyroplanes!  He got his start flying gyroplanes with one of the last G1's that were built in 2000.  In fact, that is how I met Dave in 2008.  I got a call from a college buddy (Dan Dantema) who invited me to come to Pinconning, MI and do a flight demonstration in one of the club members (Dave Yant's) original HoneyBee Gyros, a G1. I gladly accepted the opportunity and a little over three years later, Dave is here and on staff with HoneyBee G2!  Check out Dave's background.....

As a Helicopter A & P Mechanic...                                                                                                                           
  • He performed overhaul inspections and upkeep on a fleet of  Bell helicopters under Part 135 Operations including remote field bases. He coordinated field aircraft repairs & part requirements and assisted in strict fleet maintenance schedules for each aircraft.
  • As part of this, he documented all maintenance and repairs made to each aircraft providing a detailed history of all activities performed to each aircraft.

Dave is just what we needed!

As I have mentioned to you before, the best way to make a friend for life is to fly gyroplanes together. Dave is one of those guys that I just love being with....I can't wait for you to meet him. 

Welcome aboard Dave!
