Benefits of ROTAX Engine Registration

Written by

It is essential for all ROTAX aircraft engine owners to ensure that their engine is registered online.

Registering your engine links your Rotax product with warranty services, proof of ownership, recall notifications and bonus campaigns. Warranty coverage not only protects your engine - it protects your wallet.

This central online paperless engine registration process offers various advantages for Rotax aircraft engine owners.

First of all, it is very important for BRP-Rotax to get to know their customers and their engines in operation. This allows to optimize the distribution and service network according to customer's needs. With our modern reality of global supply chain disruptions, an accurate real-time view of all engines in the field is essential for the timely planning and fulfillment of spare parts supplies.

Another advantage is that in case of a reported engine theft, a re-registration of this engine is impossible.

Please note that when a new and unused engine is purchased from a ROTAX® authorized Aircraft Engines distributor or their independent Service Centers, that the engine owner must register the engine on the ROTAX website within 30 days of purchasing the engine. This is a requirement for warranty coverage; please refer to the service letter "Warranty conditions for ROTAX® Aircraft Engines". 

If you purchase a used ROTAX aircraft engine that is still within its warranty coverage period, the warranty (and any ROTAX CARE extended warranty, if applicable) shall be transferred and shall be valid for the remaining coverage period, provided that the engine was properly registered online as described in the document above. You (the new owner) are then required to re-register the engine online, without delay.

 From the September 2018 issue of Sport Aviation / Experimenter magazine, a look at the Fuel Pumps used on the Rotax 912 engine.


In between each LSRM (Light Sport Repairman Maintenance) class, we usually spend a considerable amount of time upgrading our curriculum. For some time now, we have had a desire to rewrite the curriculum surrounding the fuel pumps used on the Rotax 912. For many years the fuel pump issue was a hot topic in class. There had been a significant number of problems related to the mechanical fuel pumps. 

Many of the problems were created by the operators, but a few were obviously related to the design of the fuel pump. As a result, around 2013, Rotax issued service bulletin SB-912-063 (Replacement of fuel pumps). This began the introduction of the 3rd generation of fuel pumps, (part numbers 893114, and 893115).
