California Power Systems is now taking preorders for the new Rotax 912iS engine.
Based on research and testing, BRP’s Rotax 912 engine series has been improved even further, CPS officials said. The new Rotax 912iS is a 4-cylinder, 4-stroke liquid-/air-cooled engine with opposed cylinders. It is fuel injected and consumes 21% less fuel than the carbureted version (only 4 gph at 75%), company officials said. Other benefits include no manual choke, no carburetor icing, and the need to synchronize two carbs is no longer required.
Pilots will appreciate the easier pre-flight check and starting procedures with the new Rotax 912iS, CPS officials note, who say the Rotax 912iS is the ideal engine for light sport aircraft with its reduced fuel consumption, reduced fuel emissions, easier operation, and state-of-the-art engine management systems.
