• 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.

As far as I can see there are only four possible answers;

1) Don't belong to a chapter
2) Get elected to the "entertainment" officer and go for it
3) Start another chapter
4) Start an on-line chapter

LOL "entertainment" officer". That's describes that function!

"On-line chapter"......It sounds good, but....
Having the drudgery of maintaining that and getting volunteers or Officers to keep that going will be work in it's self.
We would have more information than any other Chapter online. Many would flock to that, and the format will eventually stray off course to encompass the Masses. And not to mention the "Hammer of the EAA" on the structure and content.

Here's my view....
I found this site by searching the web for Skybolt information. Looked at it awhile and joined.
I know aircraft, but not everything. I'm always looking for the "How to" or the "How to do it different". My Skybolt is almost done, but I seen there was a Builders Manual ("How to") that was being compiled, so I spent the $$. There's some good stuff in there!

We have it all set-up right now, here, the "How to's" in the Skybolt Builders Manual.
Information in the Manual can be gleaned to do a "Homebuilders How to" article section on this site. Look at the question's now from builders asking if the Skybolt manual would help them building their airplane.
Make it a pay access section, that would be around $5 to access. There will be a mass of people wanting access to that, once known. I wouldn't mind being part of that.

I'm sure Beej can have that ready in no time.
Oh, there needs a blurb shaking off the Liability of the section! ;)
Build it and people will come. ;)
