How much roughly does a 1000 hour overhaul cost?
If ever in doubt about flying - drink a beer.
That will give you at least 8 hours to think about it some more.

It depends who does it! Suggest you firstly enquire at the Jabiru Factory in George if you are seriously in the market.

Thanks for the picture - and she is still going strong! I've put over 450 hours on her without a single 'hiccup'. We fly virtually every week, which is the main reason why the engine has been so reliable and still has good compression even after nearly 900 hrs. I will certainly miss this little aerie, but it is time to move onto something with a few more knots, and a closed cabin. My bones are getting a little old for the open cockpit, especially in winter.

Safe landings! - Best regards.

Love how the Aeroclube colours complement the aircraft! Beautiful =D> =D> =D>

Inhambane must have been a great place to fly around in with a Bantam =P~

Its a top overhaul.....and mostly likely hone and new rings....and its a 4 cyl......with mechanical lifters.....and zero cooling problems being out in the open high up on a Bantam....I would be surprised if if would cost more than R30k. :idea: If I could fit (tried but too wide) I would buy it anytime. :(
