Jabiru SP

The Jabiru J120 and SP aircraft are the smallest of the Jabiru range.

 Their low stall speeds and docile handling make them exceptional aircraft for ab-initio training as they allow the student to focus on and build good stick and rudder skills, which are the foundation of safe, proficient piloting. The rate to the student is also half of the older generation C150 / Warrior trainers.

General Information

Note that the SP and UL variances may vary slightly. Always look up figures in the POH for the aircraft being flown.
