Hello All,

Just thought I would introduce myself here. After nearly 25 years of trying to get my pilots license I have both the time and money to pursue it (we all know those struggles). I am 47 years young and presently a student pilot. For a long time I have known I wanted an older plane. Something with a little character and panache. About 5 years ago I knew that would be a Piper Tri-Pacer. Both in terms of affordability, economy and character. My Tri-Pacer is due to enter our lives in probably August or September. Has only 300 hours on a new engine, has been metalized and is IFR equipped!! Can't wait to get her. In the mean time I'll be flying a 172 (Blech) to do my training in.
I have lots of idea's about what I would like to do with her once I get her but those are for another thread and time.

This is a picture of her sitting in the current owner's hangar.
