If someone out there has experience flying a Pacer at higher field elevations please help me out.

One of the pilots at my airport has purchased a Pacer and needs a checkout in it. I am the only T/W Instructor around. I do have some limited time in a Colt recently ( 4 hours ). Seems like they should be about the same with only two aboard. Also I need to do the checkout flight after it has been reassembled from being a 10 year hangar queen. It received a full and complete annual from an I/A I know and trust.

Suggestions as to real world "V" speeds, pattern speeds and what other you feel I should know.
