Single Engine Piston American Champion 7-GCAA Citabria Aircraft Information
The American Champion Citabria line features single engine lightweight, two seat fixed landing gear aircraft. The name comes from the ability of the plane to withstand aerobatic stresses. Citabria is airbatic spelled backward. The main uses are flight training and personal use though they can be used as glider tow planes.
The Citabria is based on the American Champion 7 Series Champ. The main body in the Citabria series is welded metal tubing with the outer fuselage made of wooden longerons and formers and are covered with fabric as are the wings and tail surfaces. The wings of the Citabria feature aluminum ribs and are strut braced. At the time of its introduction, the series was the only aircraft commercially produced in the US that was certified for aerobatics.
