Thank you to Jim Grau, who shared this 1956 promotion for the Piper Tri-Pacer, our Vintage Ad of the Week! ... See MoreSee Less
Brother in law had one with the O320.. What a ride.
First plane I ever flew in!
Wish I had that one in the ad.
But then again, it’s hard to beat your t-craft
Omni navigation!?? 😀
I always loved the tri- pacer . Like the pacer too !
A really great aircraft. I have over 400+ hours in them as an instrument instructor and can tell you its attributes were unsung.

It seemed my old and deceased pal, Ray Allison of Fredericksburg, VA owned a Piper Tri-Pacer all his life, but in fact, before his 1950’s Tri-Pacer, Ray owned one of the two Cubs that William Piper flew around the World in 1947. On one occasion, a Pan Am stew was looking over Ray’s Cub in the hanger at Washington National, and after close inspection at the base of the vertical stabilizer, said Yes! Right here are my initials which I placed there in Buenos Ares. Stephen Coonts, Les Field, William Ciesla, Jule Caylor.
Learned how to fly in one back in 1983, 4842A
Soloed and got my private license in a Tri Pacer in 1963.
We used to call it the “milk stool”because of the gear...😉
The Tri-Pacer helped me get my girl. In 1961 I was a broke college student but scraped together the $15 required for a ride for me and my girlfriend (now wife of 59 years) in a Tri-Pacer in Gainsville GA.
I owned 1/10 of a 1957 Tri Pacer in the late 1960s. Had a lot of fun in that airplane and good old 8052D is still flying in Minnesota...
Helped my Dad recover several of those then took my first flight training lessons in one of them. Originals had a break lever under the panel so no differential braking.

Congratulations to Jason Brand, owner of our Plane of the Week! Jason says, "Our 1967 Bellanca Citabria 7GCAA. Owned by my wife Audrey and I, of Placerville Ca, EAA512 Chapter. Image taken by me at Spaulding Airport (Eagle Lake), CA just after sunset on a full moon weekend. An economical combination of travel and fun!" ... See MoreSee Less
I learned to fly in a Citabria!
I have an R/C model of that plane. Fly's great.
Dang that's purdy! Nicely composed shot, too. Prop blade pointing at the moon is a neat touch 👍
They are a nice little wing
Once built in Wisconsin!
Cirabria - Airbatic
First a/c I was passenger/flew aerobatically! WOO HOO!
What a bird.
N88098 1974 Bellanca 7KCAB Citabria C/N 467-74
I was a member of the EAA very early in its history, I still have the card somewhere with a four-digit number!
Citabrias are such great planes!!
Nice looking plane
