Note*** When you call California Power Systems to sign up make sure you tell them it is for the Tucson, AZ class in Feb. so it isn't confused with some other class..




New  Rotax 912UL/ULS & 912iS Service Class

Conducted by Rotax Instructor Roger Lee in Tucson, AZ

In conjunction with California Power Systems

Come join us for a new and exciting Service class.




Feb. 4 & 5th, 2017

(Saturday & Sunday)


This class is a must for an Owner, LSRM or an A&P mechanic to develop their 912 series inspection skills and knowledge.

This class will focus on a hands on approach to completing a 100 hour / annual condition inspection. The class will differ from other Service rated classes as it will spend less classroom time and a lot of hands on time with a live engine performing a 100 hour / Annual Condition Inspection. You will be able to ask on the spot questions and solve problems on the live engine while developing and expanding your 912 inspection skills and knowledge base. We will have classroom in the morning Saturday and Sunday  (Feb. 4 & 5th) and spend both afternoons doing an annual inspection on an in-service and operational 912 engine. The afternoons will be spent in the hangar and everyone will be turning wrenches and performing task. You WILL understand a carb sync at the end of this class. JWe will have the Maintenance manual out and will follow the inspection procedures. At the end of this class you should be well grounded in the performance of a 100 hour / annual condition inspection. You will receive a Rotax Service certificate for successful completion of this class.

Our classroom is air conditioned and comfortable. The hangar is air conditioned temperature controlled with a bathroom. Minimum limit is 4 students with a cap of 12. The class size is limited to make sure everyone gets to participate so don’t procrastinate and sign up now. Class times will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Fly into Tucson International Airport (TIA) or fly your own plane into Ryan Airfield. Classes are Saturday and Sunday. All rental cars are on site at Tucson International Airport or Enterprise will pick you up if you fly into Ryan Airfield. Several hotels are just hundreds of yards down the street at TIA. Ryan Airport (KRYN) is only 10-12 minute drive. The entire experience is convenient and comfortable.

Tucson, AZ Rotax Service Class Details

Feb. 4 & 5, 2017


Here are the details and information regarding the upcoming Rotax Service class. This is a hands on 2 day class targeted at performing an annual / 100 hour inspection. There is some Power Point presentation in the mornings, but the difference in this class versus others is all the hands on time. We will actual work on a real engine for an annual inspection and asking questions on a live Rotax 912ULS engine during our work. A 912iS engine will be there for discussion. This is a Rotax authorized class and you will get certification for it.


The class is Feb. 4th & 5th, Saturday & Sunday. The class will start promptly at 0800 each day. There will be class in a conference room each day in the morning and work in the hangar each day after the class presentation. There will be a lunch break each day at approximately 1130 hours.

Please bring a laptop or tablet device in case you need to find Rotax information or manuals on line. There is Wi-Fi in the classroom.

The class is being held at Ryan Airfield (KRYN) in Tucson, AZ. (9698 W Ajo Hwy).  This is west of Tucson proper and city limits and approximately 15 minute drive from the Tucson Airport (TIA). If you fly in your own aircraft parking is right up at the back door of the conference room. Rental cars are available at Tucson Airport and Enterprise usually will pick you up at Ryan if you need a car from there.


Make your hotel room reservations and any car rental reservations now because there is a large Gem & Mineral show in town.


Directions to Ryan Airfield are as follows and can be reached by either Ajo Hwy or Valencia Rd. They both run right in front of Ryan Airport. The conference room is up front at the airport on Ajo Hwy. It is the only building out on Ajo Hwy and the only parking out on Ajo Hwy.


If you are staying in Tucson central or out by Interstate 10 then take I-10 to I-19 south. Immediately exit west onto Ajo Hwy. Follow this road 12 miles out to Ryan Airfield.


An alternative area to find a hotel is in Green Valley, Az just 15-20 minutes south of Ryan. It’s an easy drive.


If you are staying in a hotel out by Tucson Airport off Valencia Rd. Just head west on Valencia until it dead ends right at Ryan Airfield on Ajo Hwy.


The restaurant at Ryan field just closed and they hope to have it open by class time, but that may not happen so we may have to drive a few miles for lunch. We can share cars.



Prepare to learn and have fun doing it!
