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).

Hello everyone. My name is Mike, I'm new to the forum. I'm a corporate pilot by trade. After years of the button-down life of a button-pushing corporate jet jockey, I've got the itch to kinda return to my roots. Learned to fly when I was quite young (I had a pilot's license before I had a driver's license) in a Citabria on a grass strip. Helped a great old group of guys (unfortunately all gone, now) build a Cassutt, a Starduster !! and a HiperBipe, plus rebuild a Luscombe. But after a while I got away from fun-flying and concertrated on avaition as a career and a business. While that's been very satifying and enjoyable, recently I've had a bit of an itch to revisit and continue that very special part of my legacy that truely helped shape me so much as a man and a pilot.

Well, I don't want to spend this whole post giving a bio on myself, however, I felt I need to provide a little background, first. But I'll cut to the chase: I'm considering an Acro II project, however I need to confirm that, well, I'll fit!! At 6'3"x240, I'm not exactly homebuilt sized!! I'd like to try to fit-in in person, If anyone has or knows of an Acro II in northern Ohio that I could try on for sized, I'd appreciate it!! Thank You!!
