Lockwood Aviation's Aero Technical Institute
We specialize in Rotax Aircraft Engine Maintenance Training. Located on the Sebring Regional Airport, we are associated with Lockwood Aviation Supply in Sebring, Florida; a company that has been specializing in Rotax aircraft engines for over 25 years and is the leading Service Center for the 9-series engines in the United States. This school has been formed to take the hard-earned wisdom from those years of experience and provide it to you. Whether you are an A&P who wants to serve the rapidly growing Light Sport community, a brand new Light Sport Repairman, or the owner/renter of an aircraft which is powered by a Rotax engine, we have a course for you.
Rotax 4-stroke engine training is now done in three levels.
The first is Service Training. It covers the engine systems, operational issues, routine service, and inspections - including the condition inspection (100 hour or annual).
The second course is Maintenance. It continues deeper into engine systems and installation issues, troubleshooting and major component disassembly. It is intended for homebuilders and licensed maintainers.
The third course is Heavy Maintenance. It continues covering engine disassembly of all components with the exception of splitting the case and goes into the repair of the major engine components. This course is intended for maintainers who will be setting up or working in a heavy maintenance repair center.
Each course is a prerequisite for the one that follows. A minimum experience level is also required for the Heavy Maintenance level of training. Call for details.
The classes are held at the Lockwood facility (unless otherwise noted) from 8am to 5pm on each of the scheduled days. We recommend that you bring a note pad, your favorite writing instrument, and a laptop as you will be needing to access some documentation online.
The first two classes are each 2 days in duration and each cost $495. That price includes the processing fee for Rotax Flying and Safety Club (RFSC). The Heavy Maintenance class is 3 days in duration and the cost is $695. The course prices will be somewhat higher for class locations that are away from Lockwood. This covers the logistics of conducting classes away from our business location. Check the information on the calendar by clicking on the class date.
Renewal classes are now available for those who are already iRMTs (independent Rotax Maintenance Technician). Please contact us for prices and the eligibility policy for these classes.
Class Cancellations: We may need to cancel a scheduled class if the enrollment is to small. We examine enrollment 30 days before a class is scheduled, to determine if that is necessary. Please do not make travel arrangements< that cannot be cancelled, before that time.
Student Cancellations: When a class fills, we will contact the students to verify that they are committing to that class date, and they will be charged for the class fee at that time. Cancellations after that point may not be refunded.
Stay here on the field at the Sebring Regional Airport's Chateau Elan Hotel: Discounted room rates negotiated for our students.
