EAA AirVenture – UPDATE

There are so many people behind the scenes that make the EAA AirVenture experience come to life each year.  The Rotax iSC/TC booth in spaces 265-267, is a prime example of how important teamwork is.
Phase 1 was started many months ago by the good folks at ArenaAmericas.  Today, Phase 2 arrived.  If you have been viewing this site, you will already know that there will be two information session daily at the Rotax iSC/TC booth. (Note: The info sessions are free, but seating is limited, so please sign up early.) Well, to make this happen, the crew from ModSpace rocked up with this amazing 60′ trailer.  Matt, Nadja, Andrew and Jesus were are critical to making this work so well.

Here is the classroom just after it’s arrival this morning:

Enstone SSDR Rally, UK

For the third year running the UK has celebrated the de-regulated flying sector under the SSDR (Single Seat DeRegulated) rules of the CAA. Compared to the FAA 103 rules, the aircraft have a bit more flexibility, with MTOW set at 300kg (660lbs), and a stall of less than 35kts. There are no fuel nor speed restrictions but you do need a licence to fly one.

Several SSDR aircraft have managed to fit the Rotax 582 as an option, such as the Merlin ‘Cessna on a diet’ on show. However, many engine are filling the gap left by Rotax in the 50hp and less range, such as the Hirth, Polini, Radne Raket (being used on a twin engine concept aircraft), Rotron Wankel engine, and a range of modified and re-drive engines including VW and Briggs and Stratton. Many folks continue to wish for another Rotax 503 as a power plant, and one wonders if Rotax will revisit this power-range with SSDR and related categories experiencing renewed growth at this time. Skydrive UK continues to hold stock of new Rotax 447 engines from the last production run at Rotax a few years ago.
It was particularly interesting to watch a classic aircraft fly under the power of an old Robin engine on a Pterodactyl ultralight machine. Also at the event, the Belite range of aircraft were introduced to the market in the UK for the first time by Patricia Mawuli Porter of Metal Seagulls. She hinted that they may consider trying the Rotax 582 as an option on a Belite SkyDock in the future.
When it comes to innovation, the lighter end of the aviation market is always surprising!

First news from AeroExpo in the UK!

The AeroExpo event at Sywell Aerodrome, UK, on the 1st to 3rd July 2016 appered to be aimed mainly at the certified end of the light aviation market, and was less well attended than usual. Brexit and the British weather may have had something to do with that. Regardless, the vendors and visitors remained upbeat.. However, Rotax powered aircraft did find their way onto the field, including the non-certified RTF (Ready To Fly) and homebuilt machines.

Here is a selection of images from the event.
