    PA-20 vs PA-12 wings

    Are the PA-20/22 wings wider in chord than PA-12?

    Might explain why my wing covers don't fit!

    From what I can find they are both 63 inches.
    After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF !

    Thanks, that's what mine measures. There was no way that the wing-tip pocket on my covers would fit. "Fixed" it with a pocket knife, but now they don't quite "cover".

    Isn't that because a PA-20 wing is a lot shorter than a PA-12? They call them "short wing Pipers" for a reason.

    The length is fine, but the pocket would not fit no matter how much I heaved on it.

    Will the flaps on the shorter PA-20/22 wings make up for them being shorter if installed on a PA-12?
