Citabria 7GCBC : VH-OVJ

"Maude"

Maude is our beautiful star-spangled American Champion arrived from the good old U. S of A. She is built for the thrill and excitement of aerobatic flying and does not disappoint..... everyone knows Citabria is airbatic spelt backwards!

Not only is Maude fully aerobatic but she is also a dream trainer for that much sort after tail-dragger endorsement. Stable, forgiving and with high forward visibility she is just perfect for coming to grips with a conventional under-carriage. Citabria's are also good bush planes with better than average STOL capabilities. Dreams of flying over the Bungle Bungles are high on the wish list of her owner!

 

It is Maude's ability to twist and spin through the air however, that other people delight in. Why not give it a try!
