Super Lampies, it makes me miss my Tri- Pacer I owned for 17 years.
Beautiful aeries those. Especially when the smaller wheel is mounted to the correct end :D :wink:

Yes, but they put a nose wheel on them because only few could fly a Pacer :D

Hi Segg

I’m not sure about PPR? There’s lots of strips in the area, mostly used be crop sprayers, with the main airfield just south of the town.
Indeed a beautiful area to fly in, especially in the winter. Let me know when you come this side. The Cub might just be in the air :D

HI Lampies
Thanks! I definitely will send you a PM closer to the time, by PPR I'm referring to prior permission required :) I take it this is not the case to land in Porterville?
