    Nice looking rig. I'd be interested in your thoughts on performance once you get it on the snow. I've been operating my pacer on straight skis in about thigh deep snow. With the long prop and 160hp it gets out just fine. I'm looking to upgrade eventually to retract or penetration skis for convenience.

    Did they finish the STC to list the PA20 and or PA22/20 ? Or did you do via field approval ?

    May get a little snow overnight tonight to give them a try.

    Or, you’ll just have to fly north far enough to find some. ;-)

    with all penetrations skies lose a little bit of their performance versus straight skis but the convenience usually makes it worth it
