OK, I understand this topic has caused heated debates among pilots, but... What is the general opinion here concerning wood spar Citabrias and aerobatics? I'm using one with the wooden spars right now...about 2,200 TT, spars inspected every 100 hours, no visible cracks or damage as of yet. I'm told the plane was purchased from someone who didn't do any acro with it, but it is a 1970's airframe (I believe from the last year of production for wooden spars), and some of the reading I've been doing lately has me a bit concerned. I'm routinely pulling 3-5Gs in this thing, within limits, but at the top with the +4.5 to 5G maneuvers. I think we all know that bailing out of a citabria is, at best, a 50/50 proposition, especially with no skydiving experience. What do you guys think? Should I just trust the inspections or should I can the acro 'til I can afford my own acro machine with metal spars or more G limits?
