Piper PA-22 Tri Pacer History :

The Piper Tri PA-20 Pacer was a PA-17 Vagabond which was a tail dragger landing gear system. The landing gear was changed to a tri landing gear arrangement in 1953. This improved sales over the older Pacer by a six to one ratio. A four-place, strut braced, high-wing light aircraft with a fabric covering as Piper commonly used for the Cub and Super Cub. Piper offered two engines, the 125 hp, 135 hp, and a 150 hp option was available. After market engines installed an even higher horse power engine up to 180 hp. Most of the Tri Pacer's were built by Piper Aircraft in the post-World War II period.

One of the unusual features on the Tri-Pacer was the bungee linked ailerons and rudder. This allowed the pilot to perform a coordinated turn by simply changing aileron position that was matched by a movement of the rudder. Piper called the system Auto-Control. Some actually referred to the system as the first Auto-Pilot.
