Jabiru Aircraft Pty Ltd has joined the number of entities and individuals around the world who have embarked on the production of Face Shields to provide additional protection for those who are engaging with possible COVID- 19 cases. We have been very concerned for the wellbeing of Paramedics, GPs and Medical Personnel who are on the frontline. We hope that the extra layer of protection offered by the Face Shield will keep these essential people free of the virus. Our engineer Alex Swan has been very motivated with this project and volunteered much of his own time getting up in the middle of the night to keep the 3D printers going.

To increase our production rate of the 3D printed component, CQUniversity Bundaberg and Gladstone www.cqu.edu.au/about-us/locations/bundaberg and Makerspace Bundaberg and Hervey Bay www.cls.org.au/2017/10/27/maker-space/ and CQUniversity Makerspace* have jumped on board very quickly and now have several 3D printers in action. We are also getting offers of assistance from schools in the local community.

Jabiru Aircraft will have our first 100 Face Shields shipped to Paramedics early next week. They have requested 500. We are operating this extension of our Aircraft and Engine manufacturing business on a Not-For-Profit bases.

*I (Wendy Fasso) have established a Makerspace on Bundaberg campus of CQUniversity. It is designed to be a community-driven Makerspace offering experiences with new technologies for individuals, families and business. Unfortunately, our plans are on hold at present because we cannot run community events. But we are pleased to accept your outreach in coordinating a local response and to contribute to the effort to support our frontline workers.

Hypocrits??? Jabiru told me they would help me come up with a hand control system so I, a disabled pilot and millions of others, could buy and fly one of their planes. They were into the project and had a prototype and all and then suddenly dropped the project completely and never wanted to pick it back up, because they claimed they didn't have time or manpower, yet now they have miraculously have the time, manpower, resources, etc to make plastic face shields by the thousands that have nothing to do with their airplanes or customer base. Answer to the question seems to be a Yes.

Well done!! Keeping our frontline workers safe keeps us all safe. Australian made too 👍👍 Thank you. 😀

Wow you are all amazing people helping our awesome people on the frontline THANK YOU 🙏

Congratulations on such a great effort by all parties involved

A Big "Thankyou" to all involved 👍

CLS makerspace is doing fantastic things.

Nice work! Not just talented aircraft manufacturer's!

Jabiru Aircraft Bundaberg can you share any information re 3D printer requirements and IP relating to face mask designs with other organizations across Australia that might also be able to make face masks - Universities / large schools / engineering businesses etc

Well done jabiru, very thoughtful 👍

Wow. That is amazing. Good on them.

That is fantastic news!! Hope our local nurses and doctors are the first to receive these as I believe that they are desperate for protection.

Good job Jabiru!

Hello Jabiru Fleet

We hope you are well and are coping as best you can with the health directives that have been put into place around Australia. With all the travel restrictions happening, it is nice to still be able to escape for a local fly around in the Jabiru!

Our greatest priority is always the health and safety of our staff members as well as offering great continued service to our loyal customers. Fortunately at our facility here, we have the benefit of plenty of fresh air, space and sunshine in regional Bundaberg and as most of our business is conducted by email and phone, we feel extremely lucky that at this point our only, very minor complaint is trying to find toilet paper in our local Bundaberg stores!

We would like to reassure you all, during this unprecedented time that our factory is still very much open for business and is “ops normal”. Spare parts are still readily available and at this point various transport options are still available to deliver your spare parts orders to you.

For those that know Rod, he and his wife are spending some extended time at his hide-a-way home up north, “practicing “retirement, though he is in regular phone contact with us, as you can imagine.

If you have any queries please feel free to contact us via email or phone.

We wish you all well and hope that you stay healthy as we navigate through this crazy time together.

Many Happy landings! 😊

The Jabiru Team

You too have a toilet paper shortage? I thought that was just a USA issue.

Can we pay for parts in toilet paper?
