    The STC includes a landing gear to tail dragger conversion modifying the existing Tri-Pacer gear. The Super Pacer gear conversion would save a great deal of money over the Univair conversion and uses the existing T-Pacer gear attachment points.
    Just curious as to why the stc is limited to 57 and up pa 22 models?

    This is one of the changes James hopes to make.

    I don't think pre 57 aircraft should matter on the modification. The wing changes requires most ribs to be moved and new added. There may be different compression strut locations. I don't know. I don't see issues with the fuselage. Split seats are nice but, it shouldn't matter with this mod. Even the early narrow fuselages should work in my opinion. The developer did all the testing on a late model PA22 to meet FAA requirements.

    I have been wanting to build a "Super Pacer" (Bushmaster) It is great news to see that STC will not be lost. I am going to buy a PA-22 soon. I had planned to get that STC right after.
    Do I just contact you for that STC and pricing?

    The Super Pacer (Simpson) STC which we have covers PA-22 aircraft... if you have one, a benefit to someone using that to start is the gear leg attach point need no modification on the fuselage, only a tail lengthening and wing mod...
