Phil Lockwood Also Announces New Website
Earlier this year, Rotax Aircraft Engines, which commands a 75% share among LSA and light kit-built aircraft, introduced their new fuel-injected 912 iS powerplant. As the leading U.S. expert on Rotax with first hand experience working with the new engine Phil Lockwood (pictured) will present forums at Arlington 2012 in Washington State and at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012.
Using his signature presentation, a computer slide show with dozens of detailed photos, Phil will deliver two talks at Arlington and AirVenture 2012. Exit interviews from his typically full talks show those who attend feel they get a great deal of expert information.
At the Arlington show, enthusiasts will want to catch Phil’s talks at Arlington on Friday July 13 at 11:30 to 12:30 In Tent C with the topic, “Rotax 2 Stroke Aircraft Engines” and again on Saturday July 14 11:30 to 12:30 in Tent B with the topic “Intro to the New Rotax 912 Fuel Injected Engine.”
Pilots streaming to Oshkosh, WI, later in July can also catch these forums. The first one is available Tuesday July 24 at 10:00 AM to 11:15 AM in Forum Pavilion NATCA J09. Phil reports, “I will be giving my Rotax 912 & 912 iS Introduction to Service and Operation seminar. This will be a great opportunity for anyone with interest to find out more about the new Rotax fuel injected 912 iS. I’ll explain the differences between the 912ULS and the new 912 iS.” As usual, one of the more interesting parts of Phil’s talks is the Q & A session at the end of the presentation.
To prepare himself thoroughly for a presentation as well as the technical questions that invariably follow, Phil has installed a Rotax 912 iS on a twin engine AirCam, his popular design. This is the only AirCam in the world with one 912 ULS engine and one 912 iS engine (pictured).
Oshkosh attendees who enjoy the lighter side of aviation can catch Phil’s second talk on Thursday July 26 at 11:30 AM to 12:45 PM in Ultralight Forums Tent K 18. The topic will be, “The Pilots Guide to Rotax Aircraft Engine Operation and Maintenance – The Two Strokes.”
For pilots and aircraft owners unable to attend either airshow, Lockwood aircraft proudly announces their new website. More than a year in the making, the site substantially improves the previous Internet resource. For one example, replacing small images of exploded drawings of the Rotax engines with every part are now expandable files that allow zooming in to great detail. Completely redesigned navigation makes fining this huge amount of information easier than ever.
