Hope you enjoy it as much I enjoy mine. Picked mine up in October 2022. Good to deal with the jab folks and meet people I have spoken to on the phone I LOVE mine does everything it’s advertised to do

Looks good Mick, I’m sure it’s got all the goodies that you’ll love to fly with.

Does anyone know if Mick is on Facebook... I would love to chat with him.... Obviously a knowledgeable person on the Jab and buying yet another speaks volumes..

Safe travels Michael, we loved ours.

Good on you Mick. Hope you have a great trip home in your new machine.

Awesome little airplanes!

Congratulations Mick! I know you've been waiting a while to pick her up. I can't wait to see your plane when your back 🙂 enjoy the flight back

I did a factory tour earlier this year and I was very impressed with the technology in place , we tend to take for granted the end product and don’t see the effort that goes into it , well done Sue and crew 👍

Maybe even tell us what it is maybe a video of it working now that be informative

I see a crankcase so it's a Vending machine for them

Really do appreciate the work (and obvious time and costs) the Jabiru crew put in to give us such a wonderful aircraft.

There used to be a whole workshop full of them next door. Camit, I wish their engine was still available.

I love my new 230. And the gen 4 is great

A great team to work for

That looks a good machine, we will have to get up there for a closer look

What is it

A telephone box? 😜

Snack machine ?

Awesome, you’ve got a box!🤔

5 axis Miller cnc remember them well doing programming and setting them up.
