    Here is a link to check if your engine is affected by this AD.

    http://www.rotax-aircraft-engines.com/portaldata/5/dokus/d05094.pdf

    I was unable to download the one on the CASA website.

    Fortunately my engines serial # is not included & hopefully this will be the case for everyone here in Australia at least.
    Interesting that there may be the possibility of some financial support from Rotax. I would think a free crankshaft would be a good place to start...........

    Greetings all,

    As some of you may be aware, Rotax have yesterday released an Alert service bulletin in regards to a possible crack that could occur on some 912-914 series crankshafts.

    The engine serial numbers affected are listed in the Rotax service bulletin, however for some reason the EASA AD lists ALL 912 and 914 engines as being affected, this is not the case.

    For ease of looking, I have attached to this e mail an Excel file which lists ALL the engines affected by there serial number and also the official Rotax alert service bulletin.

    No engines sold by Bert Flood Imports are affected, however there may be some factory built aircraft, or engines supplied with overseas kits imported into Australia that may be affected, so I suggest that people check there engine serial number with the list attached.

    ALL the engines affected were built at Rotax during the period of October / November 2010

    We are aware of only 3 engines in our distribution area that are in fact affected by this service bulletin, and I will be contacting these people directly.

    If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

    Best Regards

    Well nice to be advised by the manufacturer, unlike others where you find out after the problems ocurr.

    Hi Scotty,

    Nice to hear it may be low impact in Oz.

    We have 4 rotax powered Gazelles in our school and was wondering what the impact may be.

    Btw ... cant see the spread sheet you mentioned??

    Cheers
