Default Rotax Service and Inspection Class April 20 - 21, 2019

I thought some would like to know.
Copy & paste from Rotax-Owner forum.

Note*** When you call California Power Systems to sign up make sure you tell them it is for the Tucson, AZ class in April so it isn't confused with some other class..

New Rotax 912UL/ULS & 912iS Service Class
Conducted by Rotax Instructor Roger Lee in Tucson, AZ
In conjunction with California Power Systems
Come join us for a new and exciting Service class.

Lots of hands on so don't miss it!

April 20 - 21, 2019
(Saturday & Sunday)

This class is a must for an Owner, LSRM or an A&P mechanic to develop their 912 series inspection skills and knowledge.
This class will focus on a hands on approach to completing a 100 hour / annual condition inspection. The class will differ from other Service rated classes as it will spend less classroom time and a lot of hands on time with a live engine performing a 100 hour / Annual Condition Inspection. You will be able to ask on the spot questions and solve problems on the live engine while developing and expanding your 912 inspection skills and knowledge base. We will have classroom in the morning Saturday and Sunday (Oct. 6th & 7th) and spend both afternoons doing an annual inspection on an in-service and operational 912 engine. The afternoons will be spent in the hangar and everyone will be turning wrenches and performing task. You WILL understand a carb sync at the end of this class. We will have the Maintenance manual out and will follow the inspection procedures. At the end of this class you should be well grounded in the performance of a 100 hour / annual condition inspection. You will receive a Rotax Service certificate for successful completion of this class.
Our classroom is air conditioned and comfortable. Maximum student limit of 10. The class size is limited to make sure everyone gets to participate so donít procrastinate and sign up now. Class times will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Fly into Tucson International Airport (TIA) or fly your own plane into Ryan Airfield. Classes are Saturday and Sunday. All rental cars are on site at Tucson International Airport or Enterprise will pick you up if you fly into Ryan Airfield. Several hotels are just hundreds of yards down the street at TIA. Ryan Airport (KRYN) is only 10-12 minute drive. The entire experience is convenient and comfortable.
For additional information or to sign up call Brain Toepfer at CPS in CA at 951-549-7786 ext. 302 or email For additional class details call Roger Lee in Tucson, AZ at 520-574-1080.

This is a two day 16 hour class that qualifies graduates to maintain 912 series engines under ASTM standards as set forth by the Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) regulations.
