Looks like a twin cub. A Tub? Not sure if has kept much of the original's charm - nosewheel to boot!

Nearly but not quite, the nose wheel is the clue.

Not quite, but the company begins with a C


OK, I thought the flag on the tail might have been a maple leaf!

Twin PA22 Tripacer.

I like the PA22. It goes up well but comes down better. I think the PA22-108 Colt has an amazing payload for a low compression 0-235 (108hp). The PA22-150 Caribbean has similar performance to the much later Warrior but my favourite is the PA22/20 which started life with a noseleg but got modified to put the third wheel at the back where is belongs.
The 150hp 'Super Pacer' weighs 1000lbs and can lift 1000lbs. There are very few aeroplanes that can lift their own weight.
