Easy to fly and simple to maintain, the "Super-D" is a fantastic training platform for introductory aerobatics and tailwheel training. Powerful for its weight yet forgiving, the 8KCAB will let you explore loops, rolls, hammerheads, inverted flight, and three point landings in a controlled environment with lots of margin for error. Its roll and pitch rates, while substantially faster than comparable light trainers, are close enough to provide a realistic upset recovery training experience for most GA pilots.
