• 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.

I am looking for advice on buying my first airplane. I am low time pilot only a few hunderd hours but love the Pitts. It will be a couple years before i can afford one but I am wondering what other folks have owned and enjoyed. What is the normal price on an average Pitts Special and does anyone suggest something else for a newer pilot. I would like any suggestions or opinions to help me start my looking and research so I can make a good purchase when I decide to buy and airplane. Thanks
