• 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 $29.95/year 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).

There are an awful lot of aircraft with out the stab brace it's not part of the service bulletins for the s-1s so no need to scare the guy. Beside have you ever heard of a tail wire failure?

I have and I mentioned it in a post recently. I that case the airplane was not a stock S-1 and the tail wire mount design was different.
