American Champion SUPER Decathlon (8KCAB)
The American Champion 8KCAB Super Decathlon is a two-seat fixed conventional gear (tailwheel) light airplane designed for Aerobatics and flight training. The Decathlon entered production in the United States in 1970 as a more powerful and stronger complement to the American Champion Citabria line of aircraft.
As Super Decathlon was designed with aerobatics in mind it features several features that make it excel. Some of these include fuel injection, a symmetrical airfoil and inverted oil and fuel system’s. These features make the aircraft the perfect stepping stone from our Alpha 160A’s to more complex tailwheel aircraft like the Pitts S2A and the Extra 200.
