The aircraft

CITABRIA

 

MH Aviation Inc. has acquired a brand new aircraft in August 2011. It is a tandem seat (one seat forward, one seat aft) aerobatic aircraft offering an excellent visibility to both occupants.

 

The manufacturer of this beautiful aircraft is American Champion Aircraft and the model is better known as a Citabria; Citabria is simply Airbatic spelled backwards!

 

This type of aircraft has been in non-stop production since 1964. It was the first civilian aircraft to be certified for aerobatics in North America. Before that time, this activity was reserved to military pilots and aircraft. It is a proven design that has evolved over the years but that remains a simple, well thought out, and well-built aircraft.

 

This aircraft is mainly used in aerobatics, learning how to fly taildraggers, or aerial advertising.

  • Aircraft certified for aerobatics;
  • Two seats in tandem;
  • 160 Hp Lycoming engine;
  • Certified for +5G and -2G;
