http://www.sportaviationmagazine.com – Jabiru J230-D – Updated now faster, better equipped and $25,000 LESS! Dan Johnson talks to U.S. Jabiru distributor Pete Krotje about the latest Jabiru model the J230-D.
According to Pete the new Jabiru J230 D is faster, better handling, better equipped and selling for $25,000 less than the 2013 model! This has been brought about by the change manufacturing from the U.S. to South Africa.
Peter reports that 2014 production is an aircraft a month from South Africa, which should rise to 2 aircraft per month in 2015. Two aircraft were recently delivered to the U.S. from the South African plant with another in transit and expected to be delivered later this month.
The J230-D is Jabiru USA’s newest premier turn-key Light-Sport Aircraft, featuring the updated Jabiru 3300 engine with smooth-idling roller cam and redesigned intake manifold for superior fuel distribution. Jabiru’s earlier models, the Jabiru J250-SP and J230-SP, are well known for their excellent controllability in winds and turbulence– and the J230-D takes this superior handling a step further with a more harmonized control feel.
The J230-D features the same cavernous rear cargo area with third door that Jabiru owners have loved since the first J250-SP in 2006. Cruise comfortably at 120 knots sipping 5 gallons per hour– and with a fuel capacity of 36 gallons, you’ll enjoy cross-country capability otherwise unheard of in the LSA industry. The well-equipped instrument panel features the latest glass-cockpit technology by GRT Avionics with options for synthetic vision terrain, ADS-B weather and traffic, and 2-axis autopilot.
Pilots will enjoy the convenience of full factory support for everything from general maintenance to major airframe & engine repairs right here in the United States. Whether your mission is flight training, the fabled $100 hamburger, or continent-wide aerial traveling adventures, the J230-D is the ideal light-sport aircraft for the job.
