    CFS Aero - no web shop yet?

    Try getting SMD modules from them, none in stock ( after trawling through the IPC and relevant bulletins for latest part numbers) and four weeks for delivery. It's only for a school plane so I'm sure...

    You would have to commission someone to make a canopy, the check on the undercarriage crossmember should be carried out at each 100 hrs service and at each permit. Another thing to check is looseness...

    Take a good close look at the undercarriage crossmember for cracks as everyone will have this issue eventually ( unless the repair has already been carried out), I've found and repaired the cracks on...

    SSDR and the BMAA

    912s spark plug lifespan?

    200 hours is the rotax required replacement time ( and at that they are barely worn), if you are having issues at only 10 hours then there is definitely another issue that needs investigating
