    Default New Canadian Pacer owner

    Thank you for adding me to the club! My name is Jim - from just north of Calgary Canada! I recently purchased a 61 Pacer 20/22. It has had an extensive rebuild in recent years however needs just a little more love to get flying. This is my second plane and first ever tail dragger - so I now have some more learning to do. Looking forward to the challenge and also the camaraderie of a new group of enthusiasts.

    Hi Jim,

    Welcome to the SWPC and ownership of a shortwing Piper. Nice looking plane and I wish I had the left side door! Does your plane have a drooped leading edge?

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Hi Steve - thanks! Yes is does have a dropped leading edge - and from what I'm told the wings are extended too.... ought to be a fun one to fly- but I'm not sure yet how it performs and of course have nothing to compare it to. The left door still needs a few bits to get it working comfortably but the view should be amazing once I get it airbone.

    Nice looking Pacer! Looks like Cub gear too. The tips extend the wing a bit but the main structure looks about the same as stock except squared off. I have Stewart tips on my 22/20, that extra wing area out there is noticeable! There is a Tri-Pacer at Innisfail (CEM4), one of the owners is Shane, good guy! He's also involved in the gliding operation there and works with Hillman up at Red Deer.

    Welcome aboard!
