All Done!

Many thanks go out to Mike Butterfield and the Crew at Yakima Aerosport. Building your own airplane can be a daunting and time consuming task. If you have any questions about building your own plane (especially if it’s a Piper), then Mike can offer you a lot of insight. This guy has been building Piper airplanes for a long time and the knowledge he has to share is priceless. There wasn’t anything this guy couldn’t answer for me and I never could have built this plane without his expertise.

THANK YOU, MIKE! You’re the best.

    It’s a rocket ship that’s also the best slow-flying Pacer in the skies today! It’s basically a 4-seat Super Cub. 🙂

    I’m building a very similar project. Where did you get the t-handles w/locks? Do they work with linkage rods? Nice job, hope mine looks equally as nice.

    How did you get those wings, slotted, approved for that. I thought that Dakota had not yet recieved the STC?

    Nice looking airplane. I found the remarks about the aircraft, before the rebuild, a little interesting. What type of performance were you expecting from an Alaskan Pacer? Pacers are awesome little planes, but like anything, they are full of compromises. And not every aircraft in Alaska has to be up to Super Cub standards. Anyway, nice looking plane. It looks like a lot of fun!

    Beautiful aircraft, could you give me your location. I would love to swing out and take a look at what you’re doing. Do you bill aircraft for people? Do you help people build their own aircraft? Do you sell components for people to do their own work?
