I'm having a problem with my Rotax 912ULS (engine quit on takeoff at Taylor, T74, and stranded me, thanks to Dayton for saving the day....again) and managed to find a Rotax trained mechanic near San Antonio at 1T8. I spoke to him on the phone and he is an A&P/IA who teaches A&P students locally. Texas Rotax and Light Sport Aviation. I plan to take my gyro to him Friday, and will let you know the outcome. It will be great to have this expertise so close. The next closest Rotax A&P to me is near Houston. Ray

There was a short break in the weather, and I finally got my Rotax powered gyroplane to Texas Rotax and Light Sport Aircraft at Bulverde Texas (1T8) just north of San Antonio. All they do is Rotax service for light sport aircraft. There were several Rotax engines in various states of repair and the owners Paul and Seth seemed ready to help. 830-560-9061. Their website is undergoing some work so it is down. They are not gyro guys, but my problem was/is engine related. Unfortunately, after parking the gyro indoors at my hangar, I'm unable to duplicate the problem but I want them to do an ignition system and fuel system check. I'll post the results once they have examined the engine. Ray

Well I finally got my gyro back from the Rotax engine A&P. Good news, he's very knowledgable on all things Rotax. He found that fuel contamination was the probable problem, but also found a hole in the fuel filter which may have been part of the issue. He did a complete ignition and fuel system examination including the carbs and floats. He is not familiar with gyro setups, so he spoke with Craig McPherson on the particulars. I'm satisfied that I have a good Rotax engine specialist nearby. His name is Paul Whetstone. Texas Rotax and Light Sport Aircraft at 1T8. I hope this helps. Ray
