RCM&E's new September 2013 issue is packed full of good things, not least the plan for Tim Hooper's latest design, an incredibly sweet Citabria Pro. Our new Jet column starts this month too!

ON THE COVER
Chris Burkett and Mike Williams are aerobatic pilots at the top of their game and, understandably, they both have an affection for the Extra 300 series. We meet them on a Sunny airfield in Kent and ask them to compare like-for-like.
