VH-MBT Piper PA-20/22 Pacer-160
Built as a conventional PA-22, this
Tri-Pacer has been converted to tail dragger standard. I
have, therefore, compromised on my model designation somewhat above
(seems silly to call it
Tri-Pacer when it isn't a Tri-). Originally registered
VH-RPN it spent some time on floats.
As a floatplane,
of course, a PA-22 is indistinguishable from a PA-20. Ian
the above shot in August 2008, showing it looking very trim and clean
at an its home base at
where it is operated by Bob Tait's Aviation Theory School .
