J250 Sportplane

Factory Built


The Jabiru J250-SP is proudly manufactured in the U.S.A. The design is Australian certified and both the design and manufacturing are in full compliance with the FAA approved ASTM consensus standards for design, manufacture, quality assurance, and continuing airworthiness.

Jabiru Aircraft Pty, Ltd has been in the business of producing Light Sport aircraft in Australia since 1991. The fleet of Jabiru LSA aircraft around the world in flight schools and flight clubs has accumulated over a half million flight hours. Jabiru LSA aircraft have the reputation of being docile and predictable – an easy airplane in which to instruct or fly. At the same time Jabiru’s are plenty tough to take on the rigors of touch-and-goes and day-in and day-out flight training.

Modifications to the instrument panel gives improved knee room. These changes have been made without affecting the Jabiru traditional strengths of value, reliability, simplicity, speed, comfort and Room. It has the Jabiru USA’s excellent interior finish and a huge baggage compartment – it is the same fuselage as Jabiru’s four place aircraft but the rear seats are not fitted. It still has the all strength needed for four place operation but the gross weight has been lowered to meet the USA Light Sport requirements.
