For those of you who fly with a Rotax 912 in cold weather (20 to -20 degrees F), what are your cylinder head temps, and oil temps? Do you use a radiator flap? Does anyone use a cowling blanket between flights?

Thanks,

Kirk,

I fly in the winter, but the temperatures in Northern Virginia are not
that cold. I have a cockpit controlled cowl flap on my radiator and
sliding shutters on my oil cooler so I can keep the engine and oil
temperatures where I want to maintain them. While hangared in the
winter I keep a 40 watt bulb under the cowl and a blanket over the
cowl. I have no problems starting the 912/ULS engine.
