Piper PA-22 Tri-Pacer        N599A                 (c/n  22-102)


                                  The PA-22 was identical to the PA-20 Pacer except for the tricycle landing gear.  However,
                                  far more of the former were built, since tail draggers tended to be out of fashion in the mid-50s.
                                  Ironically, a number of Tri-Pacers have been converted to Pacers, and a kit to do so is now
                                  marketed.  The example above is an early PA-22-150 and is seen at Hawthorne Municipal
                                 Airport in 1961.    Below is Piper Aircraft Company post card advertising the 1953 Tri-Pacer.
