JBPILOT
Looks like you are the leader in total hours. How is the Rotax 912 holding up after 1254hrs?, does it appear it will go 4000hrs between overhaul?, any signs of wear or tear?.

Flew yesterday a couple hundred miles with our group. Still running the same as when new. Sucks down terrible amounts of oil. So bad, that it will use over a pint in 100 hours ! ! ! ! ! Great little engine.
