• 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.

I was thinking the other day how much the chinese imports have affected all our purchase habits..they say 70% of the hardware line in Walmarts is now of chinese origin. I have also noticed over time, the quality of chinese stuff is getting better, and the pricing..well domestic manufacturers have big trouble competing.

So to my question...i wonder if any budding entrepeneur has tried to import chinese aircraft engines? id imagine they could turn the experimental market updside down if a decent supply chain was created.
