Jabiru Aircraft Kits
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.
Many composite kit manufacturers supply components green requiring substantial finishing and pinhole filing. The Jabiru components all come in white gelcoat or primed finish thus reducing completion times and frustration.
The fuselage is provided with the two halves (top and bottom) already joined for you. Most of the home builders 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.
