Aircraft Kits

The Kit

The Jabiru kit comes complete with everything except paint, upholstery, and headsets. It includes VFR instruments and even a battery. The kit build time is typically 600 hours from start to finish. Everything has been thought of right down to resin mixing cups, mixing sticks, applicators and brushes.
 

The Finish 

Many composite kit manufacturers supply components "green" requiring substantial finishing and pinhole filing. The Jabiru components all come in white gelcoat finish thus reducing completion times and frustration.
 

The Fuselage

The fuselage is provided with the two halves (top and bottom) already joined for you. Most of the home builder’s work involves fitting out the aircraft with components and hardware supplied. All locating points are identified by factory drilled holes & hard points are factory installed for you. Your job is to fit the horizontal stabilizer and vertical fin.
 

The Wings

The wings are supplied complete except for the fitment of flap and aileron attachments and hooking up fuel system. They are also Gelcoated out of the mould.
 

The Undercarriage

The undercarriage systems consists of 500 x 6 on the mains and 500 x 6 on the nose. Spats are also included.
 

The Manual

A very detailed constructors manual is supplied on CD, developed from Jabiru’s own factory Quality Assurance Manual. It sets out the step-by-step procedures, checklists, engineering drawings and includes more than 100 photographs.
