• 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).

I still havent found a good Pitts....
I have convinced a friend that a Bipe is the way to go, he is now on the market. Looking for something aerobatic, 2 place in reasonable condition - $25k to $30k.
Any ideas?
There would be no liability problems selling to Australia, we rarely sue down this way! Oh, accept a recent case where a guy working for a fast food outlet sued his employer for becoming chunky "having to sample the food".... Dont get that.

Man he should jump on Dan's. Anything he buys here will have to be disassembled anyway. This would solve Dan's issue also. I would hate to see that airplane parted out.

Unfortunately time to build etc is out of the question for him (and me at the moment). Also get into a bunch of certification issues here if it isnt a complete aircraft, no experimental exhibition category here. As a complete aircraft (if Dan sold it like that) would be out of his price range.
I will be honest, I was never a fan of the Skybolt until I saw the pictures of that one.....

It wouldn't really be a build, just mount an engine...... I understand the licencing issue.
