Classic Aero-TV: Updating The 912iS – Rotax Releases First Major Software Update

From 2014 (YouTube Version): Two Years In Service Yields Upgrades and Improvements

In this Video we ride along with ANN CEO and Editor-In-Chief, Jim Campbell as he examines engines on display at the U.S. Sport Aviation Expo 2014 in Sebring, Florida.

Jim visits with Dean Vogel the Technical Director at Lockwood Aviation Repair. When Vogel starts talking about the Rotax 912iS engine, it becomes rapidly evident that this is a high tech product. It’s the first of the Rotax 912 series to use fuel injection technology, but the high-tech part of it only begins with the fuel injection.

When you hear Vogel explain that engine performance can be tuned and adjusted by plugging your “Dongle” into your ECU it could lead you to wonder if this is a conversation that should be held in public. Don’t worry, any 12-year-old that plays computer games knows this is a good thing and can probably explain it. This video shows how something like sport aviation can lead to high technology solutions for safer more efficient flying. The Rotax 912iS can teach us all where aviation technology should be going. This is really interesting stuff.
