Overview

The Citabria can certainly be called this generation's barnstormer. It's role in general aviation for the past three decades, as a sport aerobatic trainer and an economical utility vehicle, is unequalled by any other recent production aircraft. The Citabria was introduced in the early 1960s by the Champion Aircraft Corp. as a sporty alternative for private pilots who wanted something different than an all-metal nosewheel airplane. It was a direct descendant of the venerable Aeronca Champ. By spelling "airbatic" backwards, they came up with the name Citabria. Sport fliers fell in love with the Citabria because, even though it had more horsepower and new aerobatic capability, it is still a sweet flying Champ at heart.
