WTB: Jabiru UL-450 covers

Postby igore » Mon Mar 14, 2016 1:25 pm

Hi !

I am looking to buy covers for UL-450.

Something similar to thishttp://www.vicdrive.co.uk/extras.html#cover

They would also have to be shipped to Slovenia.

The only thing I will say about the covers you linked to, is that they do the job they are supposed to, but they are very light duty. I had that cover first of all and my aircraft was outside. Had to replace it after about 18 months as it had holes in it. Hevay Duty covers are very expensive but will last the life of the aircraft.

I have only seen those so far, are there any better ones out there, and how much more money are we talking about.

Could you provide me some links.

Will look on AFORs as well, allthow I havent seen any there, but might check again. Thx

For heay duty covers that cover the complete aircraft, you are looking at about £2,500. For a heavy duty cover that just covers the fuselage you are talking in the region of about £700. For a cheap cover that covers the fuselage only around about £250+. For cheap covers for the whole aircraft around about £1200.
