In a product launch somewhat comparable to an Apple product event, BRP Rotax recently drew a large group of attendees to its facility in Gunskirchen, Austria, to launch its new 912 iS engine. In the tech world, “i” means Internet. In the light aviation world, or more specifically BRP Rotax’s world, “i” now means injected.
Stock Flight Systems has introduced an Engine Management Unit for BRP’s new Rotax 912iS aero engine.
California Power Systems is now taking preorders for the new Rotax 912iS engine.
California Power Systems has scheduled Rotax certified training classes from Feb. 14 through the 23. CPS is conducting the classes in its new training facility at the Chino Airport (CNO) in Southern California.
Are you planning to attend the Sebring U.S. Sport Aviation Expo Jan. 19-22? Are you an Airframe & Powerplant mechanic? Are you a Rotax repairman? Are you a Light-Sport Aircraft owner who wants the latest info about your Rotax engine? Aero Technical Institute is offering a number of classes slated for the days around the Expo.
Light Sport Group has introduced the Dr. Rotech engine electronics analyzer for Rotax 912 series engines. Dr. Rotech was designed to assist aircraft mechanics, pilots, and aircraft owners in troubleshooting the systems of the most popular line of Rotax engines.
I caught up with Jim Scott, owner of Aircore Aviation in Arlington, Wash. at the recent Arlington Fly-In. Seems business is up 300% year over year. He is focusing his energy exclusively on maintaining light-sport aircraft and Rotax engines. A positive-rate in a dreary economy is a good thing. Keep up the good work Jim.
