Summary

Jabiru J230/J430 Amateur Built Kitplanes

The Jabiru J230 (2 seats) and the Jabiru J430 (4 seats) aircraft have been developed as touring aircraft. They have a wide cockpit, high cabin and ample leg room. The Jabiru J230 has a big baggage compartment in the back whereas the Jabiru J430 has 2 rear seats. The J430 has a MTOW of 700kg while the J230 has a MTOW of 700 kg (VH Registration) and 600 kg (RAA Registration) in the experimental category.They have the same fuselage and have the standard LSA wing with winglets. The fuel is in the wings. The longer tail boom results in more elevator and empennage authority(power of the elevator), reducing the stall speed to 45 kts and increasing directional stability. The J430 was developed as a great alternative to GA aircraft such as the Cessna 172. The Jabiru J230/430 cruises at 120 knots on 24-29 litres/hour.

Jabiru Aircraft Kits

The Kit

The Jabiru kit comes complete with everything except paint, upholstery, and headsets. It includes VFR instruments and even a battery. The kit build time is typically 600 hours from start to finish. Everything has been thought of right down to resin mixing cups, mixing sticks, applicators and brushes.

The Finish

Many composite kit manufacturers supply components "green" requiring substantial finishing and pinhole filing. The Jabiru components all come in white gelcoat finish thus reducing completion times and frustration.

The Fuselage

The fuselage is provided with the two halves (top and bottom) already joined for you. Most of the home builder’s work involves fitting out the aircraft with components and hardware supplied. All locating points are identified by factory drilled holes & hard points are factory installed for you. Your job is to fit the horizontal stabilizer and vertical fin.

The Wings

The wings are supplied complete except for the fitment of flap and aileron attachments and hooking up fuel system. They are also Gelcoated out of the mould.
