View Full Version : New member in Alberta

Hey all. I am new to the forum and new to flying! I live in Northern Alberta and have been looking at what to purchase for a first plane. From everything I have read and everyone I have talked to the tri-pacer seems like a great option. My long term goal is to be able to fly into Kalispell Montana.

So to keep this fairly short, I am on the hunt for a tri-pacer in Canada as our dollar is terrible right now. Let me know if you hear of anything good. I would much rather buy a good one and spend the money up front rather than try to rebuild or get something that needs a bunch of work. I would like a plane I can get in and build some hours.

Hello Garett,
I don't check in to the Forum very often, but if you are still looking, I'll keep an eye out in the Lethbridge area.
Good luck with your hunt and your flying.
I am currently rebuilding a Colt.
