BOMBARDIER-ROTAX RECEIVES APPROVAL TO
INCREASE TIME BETWEEN OVERHAUL ON ITS 914
SERIES AIRCRAFT ENGINES

Gunskirchen, Austria, June 30, 2003 - Bombardier Recreational Products is
pleased to announce the extension of the period of operation of its Rotax® 914
series of piston aircraft engines. All the necessary approvals have been received
from the Certificate Authority Austro Control GmbH (ACG), to increase the time
between overhaul (TBO) of the Rotax 914 series of aircraft engines.

Therefore, effective immediately, the TBO for 914 engines will be increased from
1,000 hours TBO to 1,200 hours TBO. TBO increases are for all 914 series of
engines in the field, subject to the performance of applicable service bulletins.

"The extension of the TBO of the Rotax 914 series of aircraft engines proves,
together with the just recently announced increase of the TBO of the Rotax 912
series of aircraft engines, the continuous quality improvement of our products. The
remarkably good cooperation between Bombardier-Rotax, the authorities as well
as our authorised distributors worldwide contribute to this success," said Yves
Leduc, Vice President Aircraft Engines and Material Management at Bombardier-
Rotax GmbH & Co. KG. "The increase of the TBO shows that Bombardier-Rotax
stands for innovation and quality and demonstrates the commitment of our
employees to our customers," he added.

markets utility vehicles, Rotax® engines and karts, Ski-Doo® and Lynx®
