The first plane that I flew was a J-3 many years ago before moving on to trikes and then a hiatus from flying. The last 4 years were in a Citabria until flying my own -8 a few months ago. I chose the Citabria because I knew that I would eventually be in a -8. I transitioned in a -6 for about 2 hours and then 2 hours in an 8 with an instructor in the rear before flying my own. Don't count on the Citabria being your transition training to the -14, but it would be a great plane to get some great TW time under your belt.
