    Alabeo - Piper PA22 Tri-Pacer for X-Plane

    In this aircraft review, I'll be taking a look at the new kid on the block from Alabeo: the PA-22 Tri-Pacer.

    Aircraft History

    The PA-20 Pacer and PA-22 Tri-Pacer are a family of four-place, strut braced, high-wing light aircraft that were built by Piper Aircraft in the post-World War II period. The Piper PA-20 Pacer was originally designed as a tailwheel aircraft and thus had somewhat limited forward visibility on the ground and more demanding ground-handling characteristics. To help introduce more pilots to easier, safer flying, from February 1951, Piper introduced the PA-22 Tri-Pacer with a nosewheel instead of the tailwheel landing gear.

    Both the Pacer and the Tri-Pacer belong to a sub-group of Piper aircraft called "Short Wing Pipers." Additionally, the Tri-Pacer offered higher-powered engine options in the form of 150 hp (112 kW) and 160 HP (120 kW) engines, whereas the largest engine available on the original Pacer was a 135 hp (100 kW) unit.

    Over 8000 Tri-Pacers were produced between 1953 and 1960 when production ended, with over 2000 still registered with the FAA in 2006.

    Alabeo's Tri-Pacer

    Alabeo, renowned for producing high quality aircraft models, have now (luckily for us) recreated this wonderful 1950's aviation icon for us to enjoy in X-Plane. So with that said, let us begin the review...
