Piper Tri-Pacer Aircraft Information
The PA-22 Tri-Pacer is a four-seat, strut braced, high-wing light aircraft built by Piper Aircraft in the post-World War II period. The capacity of the Tri-Pacer is one crew member and three passengers. Empty weight is 1100 lb (503 kg) and loaded weight is 2000 lb (907 kg). Cruise speed is 113 knots (135 mph, 216 km/h), stall speed is 42 knots (48 mph, 78 km/h), and maximum speed is 123 knots (142 mph, 227 km/h).
In 1953, the Piper Pacer was redesigned and offered as the PA-22 Tri-Pacer with a nosewheel instead of the tailwheel landing gear. The Tri-Pacer offered higher powered engine options in the form of 150 hp and 160 hp. The tricycle undercarriage became popular and the Tri-Pacer outsold the Pacer by a ratio of six to one in 1953. From 1950 to 1964, 9490 Tri-Pacers were built. Variant models of the aircraft include the PA-22, PA-22-108 Colt, PA-22-135, PA-22S-135, PA-22-150, PA-22S-150, PA-22-160, and PA-22S-160. All models of the Tri-Pacer feature tricycle landing gear.
The incorporation of bungee link ailerons and rudder are an unusual feature of the Tri-Pacer. A small number of the PA-22s have been converted to taildragger configuration. This results in an aircraft very similar to a PA-20 Pacer. Prized for its ruggedness, spacious cabin, and, for its time, impressive speed, many Tri-Pacers still fly today.
