The Bellanca Decathlon is a two-seat fixed conventional gear light airplane designed for flight training and personal use and capable of sustaining aerobatic stresses between +6g and -5g. The Decathlon was designed by the Champion Aircraft Corporation, and is a derivative of the 7-series Citabrias. While the Citabria designs remain successful, and the introduction of the7KCAB variant of the Citabria had added limited inverted flight capability, the Citabrias are not capable of “outside” maneuvers, thoserequiring significant negative-g loads. Pilots wanted an aircraft capable of more maneuvers, and Champion introduced the 8KCAB Decathlon in response to this demand.
This is a complete kit which builds incredibly fast due to the CAD designed and CNC milled tab lock system. It comes with all hardware and composite parts as well. The aircraft it is very good-natured and highly aerobatic - there are pilots who fly Torque rolls with it. The arobatic flying capabilities are only limited by the skills of the pilot.
