Hi Guys, I'm a heli pilot currently and busy with my fixed wing ppl. I'm keen to buy a Jab SP/UL120 to run around in when i'm done.
Can anyone offer advice as to whether it is worth upgrading the spec to the 3300 engine - would I be likely to achieve a much better cruise speed? I'll be doing faily regular trips of 200nm, on my own mostly. Anyone have experience with the taildragger models - how do these compare to the standard tricycle gear? I don't see many taildraggers around, but I like the look of them.
I look forward to hearing back!
Cheers 8-[

Hi

Few off the 3300 around.
Only 1 taily around to my knowledge.

But I think you must start this under new heading, 'cos we don't visit here often..
Be safe

As you all know I have made a Nedbank account available for exclusive use of the Jabiru Club. After many warnings and precautions and threats over the last 4 months the bank has now informed us that the account is now closed due to inactivity. Not my fault - I have tried to help. :shock:

Hi Jabanaughts

On advise of Anton Valks, posting on this thread too.

I'm not a Jabiru owner, but have been following your "family" over the years.

In 2017 a few "other" planes were allowed to join in your fun arround the coast.

I'm hoping that it might be allowed again this year. [-o<

I am sure with the reputation of the first Botswana tour , that there will not be a shortage in filling the group with Jabiru's.

But on the odd chance that there is a spot available at the end, (or a cancelation) - please keep me in mind.
( a low hour blik driver, that loves Botswana)

Regards
Jaco

Dear Jaco

As a VERY long time Jabi driver I am in the same boat as you. I recently "down graded" to a RV10 :lol:

I have only missed 2 Jabi tours. One due to shoulder opp and the other due to work pressure. The rest I tagged along to pester the rest with naughtyness and some champion snoring :lol:

I get the feeling I am being faced out at this time more for my snoring than for my choice of aircraft.

Soooooo same as you I am appealing a spot on this tour #-o

If at all possiable I would like to book a spot regardless what I drive please........ [-o<
