• 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.

This aircraft is ready to be completed and flown. The Firebolt is a Skybolt on steroids, with more cockpit space, Marquart gear, and a removable canopy if you prefer the open cockpit experience. I have come to realize that I do not have the time to build, and I am seeking a flying Skybolt to purchase. I am looking for a serious builder who can do this plane justice and finish it off.

Hangared at Gillespie Field (KSEE), San Diego CA. Contact me through PM for additional photos and information.
