Piper PA-20 Pacer             N1579A               (c/n  20-813)


                               The Piper Pacer was another of the 'short-wing' Pipers.  It was a follow-on to the PA-16 Clipper.
                               Like the PA-18 it was built with several different engine options.  It was, in my opinion, the nicest
                               looking of the Piper four seat tail draggers.  In 1951 a tricycle gear version, known as the Tri-Pacer
                              135 (see next entry) was built.  Apart from the landing gear, both aircraft are identitcal.   This Pacer
