• 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.

Since there is an 8 yr waiting list for a hangar and restrictions on building and maintaining your airplane in the elusive hangar, what are some alternatives that have worked?

Mine is in the so-called 2-car garage (with room for momma's mini van which is a must) but it's far from ideal. I thought about renting space in a small warehouse, but the old lady I saw about one said, "Wood? Ya got any wood? Can't have no wood. No wood working. City won't allow it. And no paintin' neither." So, what else have the urban builder's tried?
