The PA-22-108 Colt appeared in 1960 and remained in production into 1963. A total of 1,822 Colts were built. Built as a tri gear some have been converted to  tail wheel configuration.

Colts were powered with the 108-HP O-235 Lycoming engine. Some have been STC'd with larger engines.

Built as a two place trainer the Colt used mostly basic Tri-Pacer airframe components. Even with the 108-HP engine it has around a 700 lb. useful load to haul two "full" size adults. The rear door was left out and in place of the rear seat is a large baggage bin. Because it was a trainer the interconnect springs between the aerilons and rudder were left out.

As you would expect the Colt flies very much like a Tri-Pacer and is one of the best two placers for the money on the used market today.
