• 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.

My BF9-2 received its airworthiness certificate today, 14 years and 4 days after I started building it. The inspector is a good friend of mine from the FAA (yes, there are many good people in the FAA!). The squawk list was 10 items long, and half of those were log book entries that needed to be made. I had all but one of the safety items completed before leaving the hangar today. So all you builders who think it's taking a long time: Don't give up. It is so worth it! My wife nearly cried when I called her on her cell and told her. I won't be flying for another week or two, but it is oh so close.


P.S. I'llpost some picswhen my genius computer-son can help me.
