• 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.

Been browsing the list for a bit and figured I might as well jump in after I got some email filter settings figured out. I am currently building an RV-10 and am about 2/3 of the way through. I enjoy the building process so much I am allready looking for the next project and the Skybolt radial is going to be it. I am an Army helicopter pilot by trade and have a buildus interruptus coming up while I go to Iraq...again, but upon my return I will have the -10 finished and be starting on the bolt. With the 'practical' plane finished and a means to visit family scattered all across the country, I can begin on the fun plane. Best part is that not only is the girlfriend, maybe wife soon, supportive, but it is her idea. I look forward to chatting with you all, perhaps at some point I will be able to contribute as well,and maybe I will go ahead and get the plans soon to have some light reading in Iraq.
