This paper reports the results of simulation works of Rotax 912 aircraft piston engine, which is a basic unit in most ultra-light aircrafts. The method for preparing the model aircraft engine operation process was presented. Simulation tests were carried out in the AVL Boost programme. The programme allows a full use of zero-dimensional and one-dimensional modelling. It also allows a comparison of other engine models. The developed model has enabled us to simulate the flow of air through the inlet pipes, carburettors, valves and combustion process. The preparation of the model required us to enter parameters that are not available in the manufacturer's catalogue, therefore, necessary measurements and analysis of the engine parts were carried out on a laboratory bench. The calculations in the AVL Boost programme were carried out in the conditions determined for the selected BMEP values with the objective of characterising the engine performance by determining its power, torque and fuel consumption.
