Aero Propulsion Technologies Documentation:
2-stroke English and 4-stroke English Engine Maintenance Logs
Rotax Aircraft Engines are quite well documented. However, for their daily operation and maintenance, pilots had to refer to a large number of documents: maintenance log, operator's, installation, maintenance and parts manuals, various service documents... Basically a whole library that hardly fits into a flight bag!
At Aero Propulsion Technologies, we have designed a document that
combines all of the essential daily operation and maintenance
information into a single, small, handy format:
The Engine Maintenance Log and Handy Reference.
Available in versions for 2 or 4 stroke engines and in English or French, this document really makes pilots' lifes easier.
This first part is of course a log in which hourly engine
maintenance can be noted. It also contains the information found in
the maintenance table provided by Rotax for their 2-stroke aircraft
What sets this document apart is that it combines both in a single, easy to use solution.
The Rotax specified maintenance schedule was designed to ensure optimal durability, reliability and performance from your engine. The maintenance schedule is dictated step by step, hour after hour, and when it is followed and documented thoroughly, it will save you a lot of trouble and money by ensuring the reliability, performance and durability in addition to ensuring the resale value of your engine and aircraft.
In this example from the 4-stroke version, you can notice that at the 25 hour line, a few numbers are mentioned. You simply have to refer to the maintenance tasks table in the middle of the log...
...to find which task these number correspond to, determine if the task applies to your engine, estimate the level of difficulty and know where to find more information in the Rotax manuals.
And so on until the Time Before Overhaul (TBO) runs out. This log incorporates in an easy to use formula all the maintenance to be performed for 300 hours for the 2-strokes or up to 1500 hours for the 4-strokes.
The second part includes all sorts of useful information for the operation of your engine. Some of this information can be found here on the web site: Follow the links:
