Development of small-engine aircraft Piper PA-22 Tri-Pacer took place simultaneously with the PA-20 model, with the main change was a modified chassis, which not only provides a more qualitative takeoff, and landing. Some changes undergone and the cockpit, however, mainly affected optimized aircraft control panel. Despite the lack of any significant changes in just 14 years of production of the aircraft, the assembly line of the American Aircraft Corporation Piper Aircraft descended 9490 aircraft that emphasizes the high popularity of this model among the owners.

The basic version of Piper PA-22 Tri-Pacer was completed piston engine Lycoming O-290-D power in 125 hp, while if cruising and maximum flight speed of the aircraft remained at the same level as that of the model Piper PA -20 Pacer, the controllability of the aircraft fell slightly, with the main reason for this was the nose landing gear, but in general, it did not cause problems for the pilots.
Depending on the modification of the aircraft on board the aircraft Piper PA-22 Tri-Pacer could accommodate 3 to 4 people, which allows to operate the aircraft, even for commercial purposes, eg for passenger transportation on local airlines a small extent, or as feeder aircraft.

In 1952 year, aeronautical engineer from Piper Aircraft presented model Piper PA-22-135 Tri-Pacer, which was a feature of the new engine Lycoming O-290-D2 capacity of 135 hp, allowing the aircraft to accelerate to high speeds.
In the fall of 1952 years, was presented a modified model Piper PA-22-150 Tri-Pacer, designed for placement on board the 2 or 4 people, and is equipped with aircraft engine Lycoming O-320-A2A, having a capacity of 150 hp
Small-engine aircraft Piper PA-22-160 Tri-Pacer was introduced in 1952 year, and its main distinguishing feature was only 160-hp engine Lycoming O-320-B2A, providing the aircraft to accelerate to speed in 227 km \ h.
Modification of the Piper PA-22S-135 Tri-Pacer was introduced in the year 1954, in this case, the seating capacity of the aircraft dropped from 3 2 to human, thus, the plane additionally equipped with float landing gear.
Model Piper PA-22S-150 Tri-Pacer is in fact an analog version of Piper PA-22S-135 Tri-Pacer, only exception was the powerful engine (150 hp). In the production of this modification it appeared in 1954 year.
Version of small-engine aircraft Piper PA-22S-160 Tri-Pacer was first presented to the public in the year 1957, in this case, a distinctive aspect of the other modifications S-type was the only aircraft engine increased power - Lycoming O-320-B2A (160 hp ).
Among other things, in the year 1962, in mass production was launched model Piper PA-22-108 Colt, having smaller capacity engine (108 hp), but is simpler and cheaper in terms of operation and maintenance. The aircraft was positioned as a two-seater aircraft.
