Skycraft Training Courses


Skycraft offer training courses for Jabiru owners and maintenance engineers at very competitive prices.

All courses are upto date to comply with the latest build changes and service bulletins for your Jabiru engine, We are the only training centre in the UK to offer this service at a sensible price.


There will be 3 levels of course offered.

Level 1:- Basic Engine Maintanance.
Level 2:- Engine Top End Overhaul.
Level 3:- Engine Bottom End Overhaul.

At this time we have no direct route into level 2 or 3 as we are vastly over subscribed to level 1, Persons attending level 1 courses will have priority to level 2 and level 3 courses.

Due to the level of detail required on the level 2 and level 3 courses the following will apply.

Level 2 courses will be limited to 2 persons at a cost of £150 per person.

Level 3 courses will be limited to 1 person at a cost of £300.

Skycraft have very good local amenities for those wishing to bed and breakfast, or we can collect from Fenland Airfield for those wishing to fly in to the course.
