The Jabiru J230-D is the latest development of the popular Jabiru J230 factory built Light Sport Aircraft Range
Responding to customer feedback on the J230-C we have improved the J230-D in several key areas:
- A thinner centre console makes better use of the interior space
- J160-C style control stick is more comfortable and allows instructors a better grip.
- Modifications to the instrument panels gives improved knee room.
- Certifying the aircraft to ASTM 2245 standards allows for the option of Night-VFR operations – making a J230-D the first factory built Jabiru able to fly at night (when optioned with the Night package & VH registered).
These changes have been made without affecting the J230-C’s traditional strengths of value, reliability, simplicity, speed, comfort and Room. It still has the J230-C’s excellent interior room and a huge baggage compartment – it is the same fuselage as the J430 but the J430’s rear seats are not fitted. It can be RAA or VH registered.
