Jim Meade Posted September 9, 2012 Report Share Posted September 9, 2012 I have a failing of liking to know who I'm dealing with. Names, credentials, experience, etc. We have a number of organizations that advertise themselves as being Rotax authorized or approved. What does that mean to me? Who are they? Who's on first? Rotax-Owners.com says "Rotax-Owner.com is a Factory Authorized web based support system which allows our registered members a common access point for locating key Information - Education - Support for their Rotax Aircraft Engines." Who are the people behind this? It is registered in a lawyer's office in British Columbia. What does it mean that they say they are Factory Authorized? What does it take to be Factory Authorized? Who are the authors of their publications and videos? What experience do those individuals have? Rotax Airacraft Engines appears to be a Rotax BRP site. It's where I look for Rotax publications. Then there is the BRP-Rotax Austrian site which seems like a general site with no specific help to the mechanic. The Rotax Flying and Safety Club which says, "We are the only approved independent Rotax Maintenance Technician (iRMT) training organization for the United States, Central and South Americas. " Is the key word there "independent"? The training locations includes all the operations we are used to seeing, such as Lockwood, LEAF, Rainbow Aviation, etc. What is their role in the mix? Which of these sites do I need to pay attention to? If there is conflict, which is authoritative for warranty work? Do any of these sites have some information that we are required to know that is not available on the official sites? What are the names of the people behind these sites?
