Rotax Repairman Inspection Airplane

Postby TN8S » Tue Nov 28, 2017 7:41 pm

Heading to Rainbow Aviation in Apopka FL in April for the two day 16 hour course. Really looking forward to it! Any thoughts out there on attending this training not with Rainbow but the curriculum that Rotax offers. I've only heard good things about Rainbow and looking forward to increasing my knowledge base. Many thanks for your input.

I took the 16 hour LSA Repairman - Inspection course at the Rainbow Aviation Services facility in Corning, CA a year ago and received my FAA LSA Repairman - Inspection certificate in January. I had to take the Rainbow course completion certificate to the local Oakland FSDO and fill out the application paperwork with a FSDO inspector.

Brian and Carol are very knowledgeable and do a great job presenting the material. The 16 hour LSRI course had some Rotax 912 hands-on, but it wasn't exclusively about Rotax engines as I would expect a course conducted by Rotax to be.
