Episode 52 "Rotax 912 Engine Installation"

March 2019

The Rotax 912 is a common engine choice for LSA and sport aircraft, but until just recently has been absent from the Sonex fleet. With Sonex Aircraft now supporting that option, builders are increasingly flying behind Rotax power. We speak with one of the first Rotax-Sonex pilots about his engine installation, and offer some insight and advice to pilots wishing to choose that engine option.

Guest: Gary Briggs. Gary is from Auckland, New Zealand, and recently completed Sonex #1531, powered by a Rotax 912S. Gary fabricated a custom engine mount, but retained the standard Sonex cowl.
