The Rotax 912S (100 hp) is light
weight and is certified to the FAR 33 standard.
Phillip Lockwood is
the president and CEO of Lockwood Aviation Supply, the largest
service center for Rotax Aircraft engines.
Rotax-powered aircraft will have a bounty
of learning possibilities at this year's EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, coming
July 27 - August 2 at Wittman Regional Airport.
Programs such as workshops, exhibits, and forums are offered during
AirVenture on Rotax engines. Participants can attend engine assembling
workshops to gain hands-on knowledge on various aircraft power plants such
as Rotax aircraft engines in Pavilion 20 in the Workshop area.
Among the exhibits, ROTAX® independent
Service Centre (iSC) will provide technical representatives for questions
and a staff member to assist in questions about ROTAX® iRMT training.
During AirVenture, iSC will be located at booth 311 off of Knapp Street
near AeroShell Square.
President and CEO of Lockwood Aviation
Supply, Phillip Lockwood, will be attending AirVenture on July 28 to talk
on Rotax engine operation, care and maintenance. Lockwood is a licensed
pilot with experience in over 100 types of aircrafts.
This experience has led him to improve the
performance of Ultralight and Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) through
specializing in parts and accessories in his company. Lockwood plans on
addressing issues such as alcohol in auto fuel, legal maintenance limits
for SLSA owners, and best oil options.
The Rotax sessions will help operators
better understand the features and maintenance techniques of the 9 series
Rotax aircraft engines, which are enormously popular in the LSA category.
In 2008, Lockwood donated the original
Lockwood Air Cam, which he designed, to the EAA AirVenture Museum.
Lockwood originally designed the Air Cam in the early 1990s due to a
request from the National Geographic Society.
In addition, this year's EAA Share the
Spirit Sweepstakes Grand Prize, the Flight Design MC, is equipped with a
fuel-efficient Rotax 912S engine.
