• 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.

A few of the faithfull have asked me over the last year how I made my convertable top and canopy for the Acro Sport. It was all based on the Pitts M12. Kevin Kimball was very kind in letting me photograph his creations at S-N-F as well as Osh. The result was a very nice looking (if heavy) combination of items that hopefully will get tested in the next couple of months. The reason for this posting however is that I found two photos that really showoff this combo. Please enjoy and I'm happy to answer any questions.
