    Thefts again end of year, maybe not.

    Maybe it is also time to look at something like this, without going into too much detail?

    Do the engines have serial numbers?

    Where the stolen ones go, nobody cares about serial numbers.

    They do, but unfortunately the Rotax list of stolen engines is only updated occasionally and a long time after the fact.
    Plus as MBK says, they are generally exported to countries where people are more interested in cheap than legal ...
    The three most useless things in aviation:
    • The air above you.
    • The runway behind you.
    • The fuel in the bowser.


    Rule #1: Always tie-down your aircraft to the largest heaviest object available. The planet Earth meets these requirements and is readily available in all locations.
    Rule #2: The great thing about twin engined aircraft is, if one engine fails, the other engine always has just enough power to get you to the scene of the crash.
    Rule #3: You can never have too much fuel in an aircraft. Unless it's on fire.

    Semper specto in clara parte vitae.
