Rotax expert to present forums at Arlington and Oshkosh

Earlier this year, Rotax Aircraft Engines, which commands a 75% share among LSA and light kit-built aircraft, introduced its new fuel-injected 912 iS powerplant. Rotax expert Phil Lockwood, who has first-hand experience working with the new engine, will present forums at Arlington 2012 in Washington State and at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012.

Using his signature presentation, a computer slide show with dozens of detailed photos, Phil will deliver two talks at Arlington and AirVenture 2012.

At the Arlington show, Phil will talk on Friday, July 13, at 11:30 a.m. with the topic, “Rotax 2 Stroke Aircraft Engines” and again on Saturday, July 14, at  11:30 a.m. with the topic “Intro to the New Rotax 912 Fuel Injected Engine.”

Pilots heading to Oshkosh later in July can also catch these forums. The first one is available Tuesday, July 24, at 10 a.m.

“I will be giving my Rotax 912 & 912 iS Introduction to Service and Operation seminar,” Lockwood reported. “This will be a great opportunity for anyone with interest to find out more about the new Rotax fuel injected 912 iS. I’ll explain the differences between the 912ULS and the new 912 iS.”

To prepare himself for a presentation as well as the technical questions that invariably follow, Phil has installed a Rotax 912 iS on a twin engine AirCam, his popular design. This is the only AirCam in the world with one 912 ULS engine and one 912 iS engine.

Oshkosh attendees who enjoy the lighter side of aviation can catch Phil’s second talk on Thursday, July 26, at 11:30 a.m. in Ultralight Forums Tent K 18. The topic will be “The Pilots Guide to Rotax Aircraft Engine Operation and Maintenance – The Two Strokes.”

For pilots and aircraft owners unable to attend either airshow, Lockwood has launched a new website. More than a year in the making, substantially improves the previous Internet resource, according to company officials. For example, they’ve replaced small images of exploded drawings of the Rotax engines with every part are now expandable files that allow zooming in to great detail.

Lockwood Aviation, based at Sebring Regional Airport in Florida, is the country’s largest service organization for Rotax engines. For more information: 863-655-5100 or
