Since this aircraft will be used in a humid environment the following recommendations have been made:
I recommend the Rotax 912 (80 HP) with a TBO of 2000 hrs which means that we should look for a 2007 or later model engine.
Hopefully, the rollout of the fuel injected 912 100 HP engine will make more of the 80HP engines of the vintage we want, available. We should be looking for an engine that has a clean history, has a good reason for being for sale, with relatively few hours on it and which has not been sitting around for a long time.
Any engine for us, or further recommendations will be appreciated.
