AIRBATIC
A tribute to Citabria

The early Aeroncas were the forerunners of the now famous Citabria, which is airbatic spelled backwards… meaning this plane is fully structured to perform aerial stunts. In the 1930’s the Aeroncas came in two versions, the Chief and the Chief side-by-side in which d.freemont had his 1st flying lesson. Over the years Aeroncas evolved into the present day, Citabria.

Sacred to d.freemont is the Citabria because of interconnecting relationships to Lycoming engines, Aeronca and Piper aircraft manufacturing facilities in central Pennsylvania and Lycoming College where d.freemont graduated.

Later in life d.freemont lived in Wickenburg, AZ. a favorite fly-in location frequented by world famous airmen, only a few hundred miles from where Steve Fossett lost his life in his Citabria. A tragedy without explanation, without a trace, until years later; is there a mystery here? d.freemont thinks so. The Citabria is fully certified airbatic with more than adequate power to negotiate common and uncommon turbulence at low altitude. The opinion of the aviation community in the neighborhood is that there is a triangle of lost aircraft without explanation, the Nevada triangle, adjacent to Area 51.

The AIRBATIC is available in either an Automatic or Manual Wind version.  There were only 50 made of each version.

Customer Comments:

"I did not think anything could be more elegant the the
Santorini but, when I wore my new Airbatic, I was convinced. The Airbatic can be worn at any formal or special occasion with pride, as can the Santorini but perhaps even more so." AB

"I just wanted to let you know that I received my Airbatic watch today. It is a very unique timepiece; understated and elegant. I am sure I will enjoy it for many years to come. And I wanted also to say that the buying process I experienced with you (and Barbara) was a refreshing departure from what one has, unfortunately, come to expect from many companies these days. Keep up the good work."  PW

"My Airbatic arrived today and I couldn't be more thrilled. You called it "a beautiful watch" and it is. Beyond doubt it is. As I found with my Prescott, the photos just don't do it justice. I could begin with the dial: the subtle color tone and the texturing simply don't show up properly in the photo; or the way the dial seems to shift color from umber to a coppery beige depending on the light. The numbers and indices are gorgeous and beautifully applied. The hands appropriate and easily read. The case is thin enough, even the automatic, to fit neatly under a cuff. The polish is superb. and the machining of the coin edge and onion crown exceeds excellent. The df emblem at the 7 pm position a nice touch that my prescott didn't have. And, on the rotor, the identifying number N 19 much more easily read than the 33 of my Prescott (which I need magnification to see, though that may be my fading eyesight). It is a very very cool thing to know I am unlikely ever to see either watch on any another wrist...and this number is unique to me. The watch is regulated to just over 2 seconds a day. AMAZING...and I thought my Prescott's 5.8 was wonderful. Finally, I think you for the distressed brown band you included. It's perfect. Exactly what I was looking for. This watch, genuinely, can be worn as a casual sport or dressed up for formal occassions and be at home in either setting. I love it.
Thank you, Mr. Mcready, for making such a work of art. I am proud to wear my d. freemont." RP
