Rotax 912 iS aircraft engine now ASTM certified

BRP's Rotax 912 iS aircraft engines are now certified according to the American Society for Testing and Materials' (ASTM) F2339-06 standards

practice for design and manufacture of reciprocating spark ignition engines for light sport aircraft.

ASTM is an international standard organization that develops and publishes voluntary consensus and technical standards for a wide range of materials, products, systems and services. This certification is necessary for the roll-out of the engine in important markets worldwide.

"Some of the aircraft OEMs are now installing the new Rotax 912 iS engine, which is an evolution of the proven Rotax 912 engine family. The new engine delivers 38 to 70% better fuel efficiency than comparable competitive engines in the light sport, ultra-light and general aviation industry," stated François Tremblay, Director, Rotax Aircraft Engines.

An evolution of the Rotax 912 engine, BRP introduced the Rotax 912 iS engine in March 2012. The first units of the new Rotax 912 iS engine shipped were out of serial production. Therefore, all previously delivered engines out of series production will get the ASTM conformity statement and the respective ASTM sticker.

Engines must be installed, operated and maintained in accordance with the provisions, limitations and instructions of the applicable BRP-approved publications and continuing airworthiness instructions.

With more than 170,000 engines sold in almost 40 years, Rotax aircraft engines dominate the light sport and ultra-light aircraft industry. With 20 authorized distributors and a network of more than 200 sales and repair centres, BRP supports customers worldwide and supplies engines to more than 80% of all aircraft manufacturers in its segment.
