"Dreamy", as Peggy calls her, is a 1970 American Champion 7ECA Citabria. 2-place tandem seating, high wing, single engine, electric start, control stick and conventional landing gear. Pilot sits in the front.

The airplane is powered by a horizontally opposed, four cylinder, direct drive, normally aspirated, air cooled, carburetor equipped engine. The engine is a Lycoming Model O-235 and is rated at 115 horsepower. Fuel is supplied from two 12-gallon interconnected wing tanks and is gravity fed to the engine carburetor. Fuel quantity is registered by two direct reading float type gauges, one for each tank.

Required training for the tailwheel endorsement per 14 CFR ยง 61.31. The tailwheel endorsement requires proficiency in normal and crosswind takeoffs and landings, full stall and wheel landings, and go-around procedures. Training averages approximately 5 hours, depending on the pilot.

Foreign licensed pilots with a current pilot certificate are exempt from TSA requirements to train with us.
