I really enjoyed the pictures and stories about your Tripacer. I am a newly licensed pilot and was able to enjoy my first flight in a 1953 tripacer just this week. A gentleman at the local airport owns it and is willing to sell it to me at a reasonable cost. I am truly in love with the aircraft, and look forward to possibly owning my first.

Dave, Very interesting page. I was unable to get in the army in 1969 when I graduated high school because of poor vision in one eye. I felt like I let my fellow citizen down for many years. However my friends who did go convinced me that I did’nt miss anything worthwile. I sincerly want to thank you and all the other vets that served. Being older and wiser I believe we should not have been there under the restrictions our government made you guys suffer under. Good job and thanks again. Kim Campbell

Hi! I really like your story about Vietnam. I am a 16 Year old kid. Who is thinking seriously about going in the military. I just wondered if you can tell me alittle about how the army works and the training it takes to become a soilder. I’ve been everywhere and nobody will give me that information. Even the Official Army page denise that info. so if you could give me a little hint, and tell me what I need to do to prepare myself, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!
Dave – Nice stuff. I am an ex Naval Aviator, cut my teeth on the A-4 series. Also have always been deep into civil aviation (CFI, ATR). I flew a Tri-Pacer as a teenager ($10 bucks for 1/2 hr dual!) when they were new – circa 1957. I always liked them, and their looks Best regards Mike Concannon
