• 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 $49.99/year or $6.99/month 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). Annual membership also comes with two BiplaneForum.com decals.

I have almost finished my lower wings. Just working on aileron cove.

Hi Manuel.
You say you are working on the aileron cove!
Is this cleaning up the area where the ailerons hinges are bolted to the rear spar?
I am very interested with how you are going to tackle this.
Are you going to fabricate thin plywood to make the cove?

A picture (when you have one or two) of the fabrication would be marvelous.

Thanks. Eric.
