Development of the aircraft Jabiru J250 began in 2002 year, while initially it was assumed that the model to a greater extent will be based on a version of the airplane Jabiru J160, but eventually it was decided to carry out the design of the aircraft without any base, which in turn should it was to bring more prospects for aircraft manufacturers, but in a certain way this has had an impact on the increased cost of the aircraft.

His first flight of the aircraft model Jabiru J250 implemented in 2004, after which almost immediately was sent to mass production, and which is today. Despite the fact that the design of Jabiru J250 aircraft was carried out without any base, the model is very similar to previous versions of the aircraft, although it differs from them as some external changes, as well as technical characteristics.

As the power plant in an airplane Jabiru J250 used a six-cylinder piston aircraft engine Jabiru 3300, available from most aircraft manufacturer «Jabiru Aircraft, which reduces the cost of fully finished products. Developed by the engine thrust is 120 hp, which in turn provides the aircraft cruising speed flight in 220 km \ h., At a maximum in 260 km \ h. Maximum range of flight of the aircraft is 1480 kilometers, which allows the use of aircraft for air travel at very great distances.

The cabin of the aircraft has a small size and can accommodate on board the aircraft of only two people - a pilot and a passenger, which is one of the major shortcomings of the aircraft.
