About This File

The J230 is a two-seat development of the four-seat Jabiru J430, optimized for the US light-sport category, which is restricted to two seats. The J230 uses the same wings and fuselage as the J430, but deletes the back seats, leaving a large baggage compartment. While the J430 has a gross weight of 1,540 lb (699 kg), the J230 is restricted to a gross weight of 1,320 lb (599 kg).


The J230 features a strut-braced high-wing, a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration enclosed cockpit with a large rear baggage compartment, fixed tricycle landing gear and a single engine in tractor configuration. The cockpit is 44 in (112 cm) wide


The aircraft is made from composites. Its 31.3 ft (9.5 m) span wing has an area of 103 sq ft (9.6 m2) and mounts flaps. The aircraft's recommended installed engine power 120 hp (89 kW) and the standard engine used is the 120 hp (89 kW) Jabiru 3300 four-stroke powerplant. Construction time from the supplied kit is estimated as 600 hours. The design is approved for night flying.


The J230 has a standard empty weight of 816 lb (370 kg), which combined with a full fuel capacity of 216 lb (98 kg) and a gross weight of 1,320 lb (599 kg) leaves 288 lb (131 kg) for crew, passenger and cargo with full fuel.


The J230 is listed on the Federal Aviation Administration's list of approved special light-sport aircraft.
