Jabiru North America, LLC is closing

After nearly 20 years as a Jabiru importer / distributor, it is time for me to retire.  It has been my privilege to work with so many talented aircraft builders over the years.  I have learned so much from this group of innovative, entrepreneurial craftsmen.  The interaction with homebuilders is something I will miss.

It is time for some new blood with more energy and creativity than I can muster to care for all the Jabiru customers and aircraft builders.  Nick Otterback, owner of Arion Aircraft, LLC and designer of the Lightning airplane is just the man for that job and he has taken over the Jabiru engine, firewall forward, parts and service business.  Nick is very well qualified in the world of Jabiru as he and his crew have produced nearly 200 Lightning kits and LSA aircraft with most of them powered by Jabiru engines.  Arion Aircraft has fully qualified repairmen on staff who are already experienced in Jabiru engine service, overhaul, repair and upgrade.  I know Nick will do a great job for his customers.

I will be hanging around for a while helping with tech support and in general helping in the business transition.  Engine and parts orders in the Jabiru North America pipeline before April 1st, 2018 will be fulfilled by Jabiru North America, LLC and when those deliveries are completed the company will close for good.

Again, it has been an honor and privilege to represent Jabiru all these years.
