View Full Version : New TriPacer owner from Oklahoma

02-24-2020, 03:32 PM

Been an SWPC member since November, but just got on the forum. Been an admirer of the Pacer and TriPacer for many years. After a 13 year hiatus from flying (kids), I recently jumped back in air by purchasing a TriPacer. This is my first fabric plane to own, but I figured it would be a great way to knock off the rust and has enough room to take my wife and boys up. So far it's been a great flying plane. I thought the short wing would make little less forgiving in a stall than other aircraft I've flown (Mooney, 175, 182, Decathlon), but I quickly found that stalls are a non-event. Also found that power on stalls are really more of a mush than a break.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone.
