• 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).

Here's an interesting subject.... I have only been a local chapter member for a year now, so I cannot comment on this:


After speaking with a few of the old-timers, on more than one occasion someone has mentioned that the chapters are not like they used to be due to the RV stable of airplanes being so commonplace. They say what often happens is the RV guys evolve into a clique and even start going out for RV dinners etc...kind of breaking away from the rest.


I would guess that one factor that can be attributed to this, is the internet - apparantly Vans support site is so strong that the typical RV builder never need join a chapter...


Anyone got any thoughts on this?
