    Default Pacer turns 70

    Hey all: The Pacer turns 70 years old this year and we are trying to do something special for the 70th. We are trying to organize a mass arrival at Oshkosh this year. When we say Pacer, we are talking about tail dragger short wings! Arrangements are being made, but I need to know by mid March about how many people will participate so we can prepare the staging airport and let the folks at Oshkosh know what to expect.

    So you may ask why would you want to do this. Well first we will get a time slot for arrival into Oshkosh so we don't spend hours circling a lake. All planes arriving in the mass arrival will park together and hopefully closer to where everything is happening. So if you have a PA-20, PA-22/20, PA-16, and even the PA-15/17, make plans to attend and lets make this a great time for everyone.

    Please let me know if you plan to attend so we can provide everyone the numbers they need. We are looking to stage in the Dells area of Wisconsin where they have both grass and paved runways.

    Hope everyone will come out for this!

    I'm in along with my 1950 PA20! I'm based out of RAC and a member of the local EAA Chapter if Baraboo doesn't work out.

    I just got vacation for OSH, hoping to fly our 1950 PA-20 up from south FL. What dates are you planning for?
