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.
