Rotax Unveils 24-Volt 915 iS/C

141-Hp, 183-pound Engine Now Offers Power, Charging for Everything Under the Sun

Foreshadowed earlier this year, Rotax has unveiled the 24-volt version of their 915 IS/c engine, delivering up to 800 watts for a range of aircraft configurations. 

A standby in the experimental and sport plane world, Rotax took everything users love about 915 IS and added the power needed to run a full suite of power-hungry, high performance avionics and charging systems. The 24-volt system is available for new Rotax 915 iS/c engines, both certified and ASTM-compliant. Now, users can implement a variety of aircraft board systems, digital displays, glass cockpits, synthetic vision, and more with plenty of overhead to charge trinkets, EFBs, and phones along the way. 

The new 915 iS/c C24 delivers up to 800 watts from its extra light converter. Rotax designed the 915 for light weight, compact utility, with lighter cabling throughout the power delivery system to minimize weight as much as possible. That performance doesn't come alone, with 141 peak horsepower on tab from the turbocharged, 1352-cc engine.

The 915 only weighs 184 pounds, with about 15 pounds added for the engine suspension frame, alternator, and fuel pump assembly. The 915 boasts the best of both worlds, giving power and performance while being an affordable, reliable powerplant for any light aircraft. The 915 has a maximum operating altitude of 23,000 feet, with a time between overhaul of 1,200 hours. Its electronic engine management system, electric starter, and redundant fuel injection all add additional levels of reliability and stability in ownership, adding an economy mode and simplifying the ownership process. 

This year, Rotax has also announced an extended warranty program, now offering coverage up to 5 years on all engine components with the R.E.S.T. extension.
