• 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.

For anyone interested . . I have the prints, directions and pictures on how to construct the FireBolt style rear sliding 2-place canopy. I used it on the SkyBolt with no modifications. I will loan them to anyone interested in building it or to get ideas from.
One word of caution, although it looks and works great, a real macho canopy, it is difficult to build especially for a first time builder. It is also relatively heavy.

I also have the drawings for the Marquart gear - which I would not recommend to anyone - but that doesn't mean someone wouldn't like to try it. They are free for the asking.
