    Default New from Charleston SC

    Hope everyone is doing well. My name is Ben and I am a student pilot in Charleston SC flying currently out of KRBW. Today I signed papers to purchase my first aircraft. A 1953 Piper Pa22/20 conversion. I'm incredibly excited. Flying it home this week!

    I look forward into diving into this world!

    Hey Ben,
    The 22/20 is a great flying plane. Enjoy getting to know tailwheels. I bought mine 3 years ago and still love going out and doing pattern work. Just keep flying her until the prop stops!

    Thanks Brian,

    I plan on flying as much as I can. Iím trying build time towards my commercial license eventually. I have been blessed to take lessons in a few different Tailwheels including a Stinson 108-2, Cessna 170b, and a Luscombe 8E. Iím looking forward to finishing my training in such a cool machine! Awesome to have a good community to rely on as well.

    Welcome to the Club. You've flown some good classics for experience. They all have their pros and cons. I think you will like the "Pacer". It is economical (for an airplane), fairly easy to work on, and parts are available. And it doesn't take up much room in a hangar. I just hope the fabric is up to par and the tubing isn't rusty, or the economical part just went out the window.

    Ben,
    Hope that you have been well and that flying your PA-22/20 is providing you happiness. I am the Carolinas Chapter president and will extend a belated welcome to the Shortwing brotherhood. If you ever fly towards central NC give me a shout.
    Once we start holding regular meetings again I will send you a list of our locations.
    Stay well.

    Hi Ben,

    Welcome to the club and take advantage of the knowledge and friendship here. I encourage you to take Steve up on his offer as it is a great way to get to know other short wing owners and pilots and always a good time. If you have any questions feel free to ask, that is why we are here.

    Cheers,
    Steve Carruthers
