Corby Starlet CJ-1


The CJ-1 is a wood and fabric single seat aircraft, designed in the 1960's by Australian, John Corby. This aircraft has the largest recommended engine fitted; the 85HP Jabiru 2200, which in this case was purchased freshly overhauled by Jabiru, in 2006.


This aircraft is regularly flying, but may need some personal 'TLC' to restore to its originally built condition. Perfect for the pilot / amateur builder who can perhaps fly the aircraft and conduct restoration works over the medium-term.
