Rotec's R2800 Radial Powered Flybaby Ready to fly out

Rotec had heard that last year’s SAAA  AUSFLY , so decided to have a presence at this year’s event.
Rotec had on display all its Products including radial engines, LCH, TBI, Jabiru aftermarket solution and of course Rotec’s iconic Flybaby demo air craft which took many joy flights all weekend.

Rotec’s Paul and Ben departed Melbourne’s Tyabb airfield early Thursday morning amidst some pretty cold and miserable weather.  As we left Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs and got past Mangalore the weather just kept getting warming and warmer.  By the time we arrived at Narromine (15mins from Dubbo) the weather was sunny and warm. Just perfect!

We spent the rest of the afternoon setting up the booth and display. We had earned a cold beer and steak and enjoyed that evening with the locals.

Then there's the Rotec Radial powered Flybaby which always commands attention whether as a stationary exhibit, a demo for engine start-ups or for joy flights for potential customers. There is after all nothing quite like a Radial when it thunders into action with such a distinctive sound and associated smoke and smell!

Rotec Booth At Osh

Osh 2013 What you missed.

This was Rotec’s 12th year at Oshkosh and our 10th year straight! 

This year we were positioned right on the taxi way of the North 40 cross over, this was a great central location with plenty of space and better access for visitors and customers.

What's more we had all sorts of planes taxiing by us all week, from visitors through a range exhibitor aircraft making for great entertainment for all of us.

The perfect sunny weather, low winds, no rain and mild temperatures all week made for a great Osh 2013 and memorable experience was had by all.

Rotec's new location at Osh

Osh 2013 Setup:

As in every other year Rotec's booth featured a back wall of photographs of completed planes. On display also was Rotec's TBI, our two engines (R2800 & R3600) along with 3rd party Jabiru products like the liquid cooled heads (LCH) that prevent Jabs from over-heating.

This year Rotec had the pleasure of having two lovely ladies helping Paul out on the booth.  Penny (Red hair) and Deanna (Dark hair) were a big hit and had no trouble keep the interest of our male customers while Paul attended to other matters.  Penny and Deanna handed out Rotec Show bags, brochures etc and by the end of the week were answering technical questions also.  Both were definitely a big factor in our increased sales performance this year.

Rotec took record sales orders at the show with all products, such as Radial engines, Jabiru Liquid cooled heads, TBI all being received well.  The “special engine offer” package which included a FREE exhaust collector ring and FREE TBI fuel injection, really sparked the interest level amongst Rotec buyers. 

After the Show Paul stayed back for a few days and drove to Missouri to visit long time business associate and friend Robert Balsee, he visited the workshop of Airdrome airplanes, an impressive and busy little airplane works there indeed.

Paul Chernikeeff - Hope to see you next year!

OSH 2010 - Message from Paul Chernikeeff CEO Rotec

A big thank you to the following who contributed to Rotec having such a successful Oshkosh 2010!!!

Robert Baslee:
For again manning the Rotec booth and displaying his amazing selection of Rotec radial powered WW1 replica aircraft.
This is now the 5 year running Robert has been invited to share the Rotec booth.  Robert and Rotec have forged a very strong relationship.

Russ Turner:
For allowing Rotec to display his superb 100% scale Airdrome airplanes Sopwith Camel.  R3600 powered.

Glen Burt:
For once again offering his services at the booth all show!  His warm personality and enthusiasm are hard to beat, Glen is building a Sopwith Pup 100% with Rotec R2800. We hope to see it next year on the Rotec booth.

John Kerr:
John flew his R3600 powered Hatz Classic from Utah, around 1500 miles!  His airplane was displayed on our booth and was a hit all show.  John’s plane captures the essence of what Rotec radial engines are all about.
John was well deserving in his winning of an EAA award for best home built.

David Shirey:
Like John Kerr, David Shirey also flew his beautiful R2800 powered Fisher Celebrity bi-plane to the show.  David’s plane was a hit during the show and  David entertained the many on lookers with his trails and tribulation during the build.  The plane was heavily judged at the show and was not far out of the trophies in my opinion.

Steve Newing: 
Long time Australian friend of  Paul Chernikeeff and Rotec's Steve Newing was a life saver during the show as his manned the booth, took orders, and answered a thousand questions, long after everyone had left Steve was there to help Paul teardown the booth and pack every thing away for another year.  Steve is a well known air show Pilot down under and has a vast knowledge of radial engines having owned and operated many in his time.  He’s presence on the Rotec booth was greatly appreciated!!!!

Pascal Kramer:
For sharing stories and documented accounts of his remarkable and historic crossing of the English channel in his R2800 powered Airdrome Bleriot aircraft.
