• 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.

Airport Closure Notice
Some aviation friends need your help to keep the Hillsboro, Illinois Airport
(3K4) open. The city council has in the space of a few days announced that
they agreed to negotiate the sale of the airport property to a coal company
and that they will take action on the sale at Tuesday's council meeting at
7:00 PM. All of this with no discussion with the Airport Board, the hangar
renters/aircraft owners on the field, or the public.

This is what you can do. Please take a minute and go to this link on the
Hillsboro Journal-News website and vote in their online poll. Just scroll
down near the bottom, left side of page. Please vote NO only once, but feel
free to forward this to any other aviation fans you know. You can also reach
the City of Hillsboro through their web site. If you call, be polite, but
let them know how important airports are. Let's let them hear from the
aviation community. We need to save every airport we can.
