Jabiru engines have been produced in Australia since 1992, with more than 6,000 in operation around the world and many in the demanding flight school environment. They incorporate simple design features, which together with realistic part prices and high times between overhaul, support low maintenance costs. Jabiru engines are currently available in two models: the 85-horsepower, 4-cylinder 2200 and the 120-horsepower, 6-cylinder 3300.
Since 2000, Jabiru USA Sport Aircraft, LLC has served as North America’s largest distributor of Jabiru engines and airframe kits. We design and manufacture firewall-forward kits for a large variety of experimental and Light-Sport aircraft. Our licensed aircraft and powerplant mechanics provide full service and support for Jabiru engines and our own US-built Jabiru Light-Sport Aircraft in Shelbyville, Tennessee. In addition, we offer periodic Engine Installation and Maintenance Seminars that are open to all aircraft builders, owners, and mechanics with an interest in Jabiru engines.
