AirVenture 2013 – People and Planes


Christian Mundigler (BRP-Rotax) holding the Dr. August Raspet Memorial Award.

The first day of AirVenture 2013 was quite a success for the folks in the independent Rotax Service and Training Centre booth.

Not only were there a large amount of visitors, but Rotax’s own Christian Mundigler accepted the prestigious Dr. August Raspet Memorial Award on their behalf.  This award honors “a person or organization making an outstanding contribution to the advancement of light aircraft design”  Previous winners include the likes of Burt Rutan, Dick VanGrunsven and Ken Krueger

What is also amazing is that in it’s 52 year history, the award has only been given to 4 companies or groups.  Rotax was honored not only for it’s new 912iS and the remarkable fuel consumption it has for an aircraft engine, but also for it’s long history of innovation and excellence.

I always look forward to January as it brings with it the first airshow of year.  The US Sport Aviation Expo, in Sebring Florida gives us a chance to dream a little and get a break from all that snow.  Over the next few days, we will try and bring you all the latest Rotax info and news for this year.  So stay tuned!
