Owner Support

We recommend that you become very familiar with your airplane and its included equipment. There are several documents in the “Documents” tab, below that will help. These are a good starting point:

  • The “Transition Check-Out Syllabus” includes contact information, maps, approach plates, schedule and a detailed outline of the training involved in your transition to flying light sport aircraft.
  • The comprehensive equipment listing: [Master Equipment List].
  • The “Rotax Owner Assistance Network” website is the primary source of information, education and support for the 912UL and 912ULS engines used in Sting and Sirius aircraft.
