Without being critical- I cannot see any sense in purchasing so small a twin. The J430 does
the same job. There is a growing tendency to move away from twins to single engined turbo props
in GA. The small gain in power is surely not a gain in the light of extra weight, cost and maintenance.
Just wondering......

Flooi, I think it has potential. It makes sence from a safety point of view....with the Rotax 80hp engines though!

Let alone the savings costs on twin conversions, I assume once all the paperwork is in place it would be a very cost effective twin trainer?

Does anyone have an indication on what it will sell for?

Would also appreciate some pics of the luggage compartment.

I like the concept and looks of your Twin Jabiru.
It does remind me of a Short 360.
