J230-D

The J230-D is the flagship LSA model in a long lineage of Jabiru aircraft. It features an aerodynamic enhancement to the design of the vertical tail surfaces for nearly-effortless coordinated handling, the most advanced avionics available for light aircraft, and the latest improvements to the powerful Jabiru 3300 engine. The J230-D is offered in the USA as a turn-key, fully-built Special Light-Sport Aircraft (S-LSA). With the ADS-B compliant Garmin G3X Touch avionics package and Garmin 2-axis autopilot as standard equipment, the J230-D gives you the most airplane for your money.

As of December 2017, all new Jabiru aircraft in the USA are sold by U.S. Sport Planes in Denton, Texas. Please contact Scott Severen at scott@ussportplanes.com or 940-597-6860.  Learn more…
