SPY PHOTOS – Subtle changes to an amazing aircraft….

We just happened to sneak a few photos of the RS AEROTECH / PROGRESSIVE AERODYNE SEAREY making its trip to this year’s 2018 Sun-n-Fun International Fly-In Expo.  This has always been a very sexy plane to look at, but smart eyes will see a few new features …..

To see this aircraft close up … come down to SE15 near the entrance to this years Sun-n-Fun Fly-In.  In case you are not familiar with this special project … click here.

Rotax independent Service (iSC) and Training Centre (iTC) booth is slowly coming alive ….

Lakeland Florida.  You can almost feel the excitement brewing with the Sun-n-Fun airshow less than a week away.  The amazing team at Lafayette Tent and Awning have got the Rotax iSC and iTC tent up already. 

Next to arrive will be the display setup team and with them the brand new Rotax 915iS engine.  This 141hp engine was just released earlier this year and already has a strong following.  Once the display is in place, the classroom will be setup behind the booth.  Daily information sessions are planned (except Thursday).  In the morning RFSC instructor Ronnie Smith will host a get to know your Rotax engine session. This will be a perfect place to ask questions.  In the afternoon, RFSC instructor Nino Tavio will have an information session for owners (and OEMs) that are wanting to install the fuel injected Rotax engines. On Thursday there will be an iRMT Renewal Course – contact Lockwood Aviation Supply to sign up)

Last not least, there will be two Rotax 915iS equipped aircraft on display out front. 

During show hours technical representatives from all the major iSC’s will be on hand to assist you with your questions.

The Rotax iSC/iTC team is looking forward to meeting you in SE15 (that’s right across from the main entrance).

SEAREY ATD UPDATE: AirVenture 2017

Oshkosh (WI), 07/24/2017 – RS Aerotech, Ltd. will show the Searey Advanced Technology Demonstrator (Searey ATD) with the new Rotax 915 iS engine at the Rotax booth during Airventure 2017. The Searey amphibious land/seaplane, produced as an S-LSA by Progressive Aerodyne of Tavares (FL) is used for long time flight testing of the Rotax 9 series iS engines, MT propellers and future-oriented electronic aircraft systems designed by RS Aerotech. The modified Searey ATD has been equipped with a single lever constant speed propeller control system (SLC), and a CANaerospace-based flight data acquisition and recording system.

The Searey ATD automatically transmits engine and flight data via any 2G/3G/4G network worldwide. This data is continuously stored on a remote computer server to generate an engine health monitoring data base, thereby introducing the LSA world to the technology of large transport aircraft. This technology will be available for all Rotax 9 iS series engines soon.

While I have had the chance to experience training in a variety of locations, this one is always going to bring back fond memories.  The technicians have traveled a long way to attend these courses. They are very dedicated, skilled and love to learn and share ideas. 

This training is going to result in a few new iRCs being placed on the map and that is good news for Rotax engine owners.

IMG_3039Today is the official start of the Sun-n-Fun 2016 Airshow.  For those of you that are unable to attend, stay tuned to this site for updates and news.

This year the guys and girls at the Rotax iSC/iTC booth are doing things a little differently.  Besides the bigger tent and slight booth change of location. They are now one space over from last year, in  SE 15.  (Turn right as you come in the main gate).  They will be offering a daily Rotax 912iS installation information session.

The information session will start at 1pm daily and run for about an hour.  RFSC Instructor Jorge Tavio will give a brief overview of the iS engine and then go into some key installation details.  After that he will answer any questions you might have.  Come by the booth and book early as seating is limited to 10 people.

Another not so new but still sexy bit of news, is that there will be an example of the new Rotax 915iS (a fuel injected turbo engine).  So come on down and have a look.
