(Rotax no longer makes new 447 and 503 engines. All Rotax 447 and 503 engines are rebuilt or low time engines that have been disassembled, inspected and reassembled by a Service Center).

All Hirth and Kawasaki engines are new motors that have no prior run time.

Although the Aerolite can easily be built and flown with an empty weight well below those specified in FAR Part 103, certain engine configurations and/or the addition of various upgrades and options may result in the aircraft having an empty weight above those specified in Part 103.
