Classic Aero-TV: The Rotax 915iS - Rotax's New 'Big Bad' Engine

From 2017 (YouTube Version): EASA Certification Process Nearly Complete…

The Rotax 915 iS engine has been in the pipeline for some time, but now the engine is nearly ready to get flying.

Marc Becker, Aircraft Business Manager for Rotax, told ANN editor Tom Patton at AirVenture that the company is nearly finished with the EASA certification process, but there is still some testing to be done.

According to the company website, the Rotax 915 iS offers more power, the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, full take-off power up to at least 15,000 feet and a service ceiling of 23,000 feet.

The Rotax 915 iS aircraft engine has already been flown more than 250 hours in real mode and further 10,000 hours on test benches. In August 2016, selected Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) received the first Rotax 915 iS prototype engines to be installed into their airplanes. Currently more than 40 Design-Ins are in progress, and some were installed in aircraft on the field at AirVenture.

The certification process will be started second quarter of 2017. Serial production of the Rotax 915 iS aircraft engine is still on schedule and is planned to begin by the end of this year, Becker said.
