Jabiru UL

The Jabiru UL was developed earlier this year to meet the FAI European Microlight definition which requires a MTOW of 450kg, 65km/hour stall speeds and maximum 2 seats.The existing Jabiru SK was modified by increasing the wing span by 1372mm to 9398mm and by a consequent increase in the fuselage boom length 610mm to an overall length of 5640mm. The SK's lower ventral fin has been reduced in size and the flaps have been extended by 1830mm overall. This has resulted in an aircraft which has a low 35 knot stall speed, short takeoff performance, almost motorglider glider ration (17:1 {with engine at idle} - Yes! it can be thermalled!), and exceptional economy. It will cross country cruise at 100kts on 15 litres/hour but when operated around 70kts returns 7.5 litres/hour! That's over 8.5hrs endurance!

The Jabiru comes complete with everything except paint, upholstery and radio it includes VFR instruments, upholstery patterns and even a battery purchase order for your local Century/Yuasa distributor. 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.
