Jabiru J230-D

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.
  • Certified to ASTM 2245 standards.

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.
