California Power Systems - About Us

California Power Systems was founded in 1981 by Mike Stratman and is the western U.S. regional Rotax Service Center, offering Rotax engines, parts, and other Lightsport aviation products to aviators around the world. We acquired CPS in November 2011 and moved the company from San Leandro, CA to Corona, Ca where CPS operates in a 62,000 sq. ft. parts distribution facility. CPS works closely with CPS Aviation Services, a Rotax maintenance shop nearby at Chino (CNO) Airport. We look forward to serving you soon. We look forward to serving you soon!
