• 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).

For whatever reason, a forum member PM'd me to ask this question:




I am a sport pilot....buying abeautiful EAA biplane that just got certified this summer my question is can I fly this as a sport pilot. I have been told yes and no by many pilots I trust and it seems that the common denominator is stall speed..........if it's under 51 mph then I'm good to go however, one owner has told me it 66 mph and two others including the guy who built the plane tell me it will be well under 51 mph. Can you forward or post this question in an attempt to get me a true answer before I buy a biplane that I can't fly.
