Whether you are an A&P who wants to serve the rapidly growing Light Sport community, a newly minted LSA repairman, or the owner/renter of an aircraft powered by a Rotax engine, LoPresti and Lockwood Aviation have a course for you. The two have paired up to offer two classes that will be held at the LoPresti Aviation Facility in Sebastian, Florida.
The Engine Operation and Service Course will be held on October 6 and 7 and will cover engine systems basics, operational issues, routine service and inspections including the condition inspection (100 hour or annual). It is intended for the Light Sport operator/owner and as an introductory course for homebuilders and licensed aircraft maintainers.The Engine In-depth Maintenance Course will be held October 11 and 12 and is a continuation of the Service Course, including advanced understanding of engine systems and installation issues, troubleshooting and major component disassembly. It is intended for homebuilders and licensed aircraft maintainers.
These training courses will be held in conjunction with the LoPresti LSA Holiday/Salsa Fly-In being held on Saturday, October 8. This is an all-day event starting with breakfast, seminars, flour bombing and spot landing competition. Come for the airplanes but stay for the music. After lunch the Latin Festival will start with more great food, salsa classes, with live bands playing into the night. On Sunday there will be kayak tours, golfing, fishing, skydiving and more. Why not make a weekend of it?
