Our Fleet

The Jabiru aircraft factory located in Bundaberg Queensland has been producing quality Australia made Recreational aircraft for over 20 years. There are thousands of these amazing aircraft throughout the world. We are fortunate to have 3 excellent examples of the Jabiru range (factory built) in our fleet.

All aircraft in the fleet are maintained to the highest standard by Mike, a Licensed Aircraft Mechanical Engineer (LAME).

The J160. Designed to JAR –VLA European Airworthiness Standard. Cruise Speed @ 3050 rpm  100 knots.
Range   (nil reserve) -   1030 nautical miles
4 stroke JABIRU 2200 cc engine designed specifically for the Jabiru aircraft.
Gentle and predictable stall characteristics, with light and responsive controls, make JABIRU a true sport aircraft.
Stall speed with flaps at Gross Weight  45 KIAS
All composite construction removes the corrosion problem

J160

 

 
J170

 

The J170 was developed with the flying schools in hotter climates in mind. It is the J160 with the longer wings of the J230 and a bigger elevator.

The longer wings allow it to climb faster in hot conditions. The longer wings also provide more float on landing which is helpful when learning to land. The dual controls and adjustable rudder pedals are continued in this model. The 100 knot TAS cruise speed is still easily achievable at 2850 rpm.

 

 

 

J230. Conventional configuration
Designed to ASTM 2245-06 Airworthiness Standard. High-winged, strut-braced monoplane with wing flaps, mass balanced rudder & elevator and in-flight adjustable trim.
Cruise Speed @ 2870 rpm 120 knots Range (at max range speed) -   675 nautical miles
4 stroke JABIRU 3300 cc engine designed specifically for the Jabiru aircraft.
Gentle and predictable stall characteristics, together with light and responsive controls, make JABIRU a true sport aircraft.
Stall speed without flaps at Gross Weight 45 KCAS
