• The Biplane Forum is a large global active community of biplane builders, owners and pilots. From Pitts to Skybolts, to older barnstormers, all types are welcome. In addition to our active community, our content boasts exhaustive technical information which is often sought after for projects and maintenance. This information has accumulated over the 12+ years the forum has been in existence.

    The Biplane Forum is a private community. Subscriptions are only $29.95/year to gain access to this great community and unmatched source of information not found anywhere else on the web. We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

Gene,
That is a fine looking airplane. If I had lots of money, it'd be in my hangar.
Regards,
Mark

It looks good, Gene.

Fly up to KTOC and speak to Bill Wood. (or call him @ Foothills Aviation).
Since he owns the company, I bet he could give you some leads.

Ok, here we are in Griffin GA. Great flight down in the Decathlon! Going over to Seven lakes air park to tomorrow to meet up with Gene and give the plane an eyeball, do a bit of paperwork and head north.

As for the trip home, this pretty much sums it up: :D

Have a good trip. Your rockin more avionics in the Decathlon than I have in the 747. Long cross country in the Baby Ace is to just get it somewhere. Will be much better when you get it home. That slow and low looks like a four ibuprofen headache, but who cares.

If you get jammed up and need a place, got a hangar @ ESN. You've got my number.
