The main reason for the development of small-launched aircraft of this model was primarily the need to provide the domestic market with inexpensive and high-quality aircraft designed primarily for private use. Aircraft Jabiru J170 was designed on the basis of earlier model Bole Jabiru J160, however, engineers have largely finalized the aircraft, making it not only more secure and reliable, but in fact, more popular.

In fact, the light engine Jabiru J170 is positioned as a light sports aircraft, and as a multipurpose aircraft, suitable both for transporting people and for transporting small loads. The cockpit can accommodate up to two people, which is quite small, however, it meets most of the requirements of consumers and operators of this aircraft. Among other things, the aircraft is also suitable for the transport of small cargoes with a total mass of up to 280 kilograms (with the weight of the pilot), however, for these purposes the aircraft is practically not used, as it does not correspond to commercial requests.

Aircraft Jabiru J170 differs sufficiently compact size of its fuselage, in a certain way that has a positive effect on the maneuverability of the aircraft during the flight, which in turn allows you to position it as a sports aircraft.

The power plant of the aircraft is represented by one four-cylinder piston aircraft engine Jabiru 2200, produced by the aircraft building company Jabiru Aircraft, which in turn allows to significantly reduce the cost of the aircraft and provides the company with constant orders. The power of the power plant used in the aircraft is 85 hp, which is very little, however, meanwhile, the maximum speed developed by the aircraft is 240 km / h, which is significantly higher than that of a number of other aircraft of this type. The maximum flight range of the aircraft is 1908 kilometers, which is very effective in terms of operating this aircraft.

Aircraft model Jabiru J170 issued by Australian aircraft manufacturers in the form of already fully assembled and ready to fly the aircraft, or as a kit for self-assembly, allowing in some cases to a considerable extent win value. During the period from the year 2008 2013 492 on aircraft of this model were built, thus, the release of aircraft continues to the present day.
