Rotax Maintenance Training


Recommended Posts

Sebring Aviation in Florida conduct regular Rotax maintenance training courses each year and I am wondering if anything similar is available or planned for Australia?


I contacted Bert Floods quite a long time ago regarding this but nothing has ever eventuated.


Is anyone else out there interested in this type of course?

we've got a bucketload of Rotax users in this country. I wonder would the guys from the US like to come here and run a course(s)? I'd be happy to work with you on that and to promote it.

Does anyone know if Bert Floods have run a course like this in the past? I would be prepared to fly to Melbourne in order to attend.......sure is closer than Florida.

The HGFA are currently running a series of courses (starting Monday 21 Oct) to certify inspectors, for the purpose of conducting Annual Inspections on trikes - both primary category and LSA.


There will follow at some time in the not too distant future, a series of maintenance courses, run in conjunction with BertFlood, to certify maintenance personnel around the country. The idea is to enable owners to be able to either carry out their own maintenance, or have access to somebody who is both competent and qualified. This will also apply to both primary category and LSA.


Hope this helps.
