• 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).

1987 AC II N209JG- $25K. This plane could be flying in a matter of weeks- All parts come with the plane. NOTHING TO FABRICATE- this is a restoration that was in excellent shape- no accidents, no damage- the original builder sold the plane after flying off the time in Nevada and after getting ill back in 1987/88- it was sold and moved to Florida, then to Maryland then to New Jersey and now it is in Central Virginia. Lots of original documentation including SAW certificate and original logs come with it. No radio, no inverted system. New tires, new brakes, new brake lines, new oil and fuel lines- aircraft basically brought up to condition inspection status.

This aircraft was stored inside a finished basement for 10 years (wife was not very happy) before being moved to my maintenance hanger recently.

Lots of pictures available- this plane fits in a Penske truck with wings, tail feathers and prop removed.
Plenty of images available.
