• 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).

I have been recently looking around at harness choices and I came up with a question:


All racing harnesses often mention "SFI 16.1 safety approved", so I looked up '16.1, and they talk about having to replace webbing every 2 years due to degradation of the material? I am assuming that parachute webbing is mostly usedby theacro-specific harness vendors, which I know from experience can and doeslast for years.


So, what gives?
