Jabiru Aircraft Calypso

calypso


The Calypso Light Sport Airplane is a development of a line of Jabiru aircraft started in the mid 80's using their design philosophy and construction methods to meet the requirements of the advanced ultralight and sport plane criteria. The New Jabiru Calypso has larger tail fin and elevator than the older Jabiru UL ST3. It has also winglets and higher cruise speed, about 95-100 knots.


The performance is a low 39 knot stall speed, very short take off and high climb rate, but with a good cross country cruise speed of 90 to 100 kts at 12 to 15 litres per hour fuel burn. This performance is due to the light weight composite construction of the airframe and the light weight engines produced by Jabiru.
The aircraft has good stability in all three axis and straight forward stall characteristics. The comfortable seats and 42 inch shoulder width provide the final requirements for a good cross country aircraft.
