MPD 2013-001E - Rotax Cylinder Head Inspection

The Civil Aviation Authority has released an Emergency Mandatory Permit Directive (eMPD) relating to some Rotax 912UL, 912ULS & 914UL engines.  The directive mandates a cylinder head inspection for certain serial numbers, for a manufacturing defect that can lead to catastrophic failure of the engine.

Please note that the Rotax Alert Service Bulletin mandates that the inspection is conducted before next flight.

All new engines supplied through the UK Rotax distributor (Skydrive) have had the directive implemented.  Engines from other sources (supplied by kit importers for example) that are in current circulation could be affected.
