Ro­tax thefts con­tinue

Pilot - - Notes -

In just one night in early June, six Ro­tax 912 and 912S en­gines were stolen from mi­cro­lights at Clench Com­mon, along with a large amount of tools. The theft of Ro­tax en­gines has be­come an all-too-com­mon oc­cur­rence, with around 45 stolen across the coun­try in 2016-7. With known se­rial num­bers and with­out their log­book, the en­gines could not be sold le­git­i­mately in the UK and it is thought they are shipped out for sale else­where in Europe.
