Rotax changes UK distributor
As of 3 December 2014, the Rotax Aircraft Engines distributor for the UK, Ireland and Iceland will be CFS Aeroproducts.
The CAA Annexe 2, EASA and FAA Part 145 approved company will take over from Skydrive Ltd, which will remain the authorised distributor until 3 December.
CFS’s range of capabilities has been extended and refined to support engine and propeller repair and overhaul, NDT Level 3, landing gear, instruments and accessories. It holds approvals to undertake propeller overhaul, propeller repair and AD compliance for a wide range of propellers.
The CFS engine section has significant experience of aircraft engine repair and overhaul in high performance and bespoke kit engines, radials, inline, flat and turbine engines. Its facility has a designated engine section with individual servicing zero-timing work bays and separate test rigs for testing and run-in of all engine types that CFS offer services for. CFS undertakes a wide range of Level 3 NDT with qualified technicians carrying out Eddy Current (ECI), Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI) and Liquid Penetrant Inspection (LPI).
“We are looking forward to further improve our network and support for pilots and professionals in the UK, Ireland and Iceland. The cooperation with CFS will ensure excellent service for all users of certified and non-certified Rotax Aircraft engines,” stated Marc Becker, manager, Rotax Aircraft Business.
BRP-Powertrain would like to thank Skydrive Ltd. and its team for more than three decades long support and wishes all the best and success for its upcoming projects.
