• 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.

Just finished reading a nice artilce on Lynn Williams' Z21 Flitzer in the August edition of Kit Planes (the more I read this magazine, the more I like it... lots of articles for the scratch builder in there)

Sound like it'd be a beautiful biplane to build if you're looking for a beautiful handling, WWI era single seater. Constructed mostly of wood... not tubing.

A quote from the artilce that was written by Bob Grimstead "you would never tire of - endlesly challenging to fly accurately, but immensely satisfying when you get things just right, their handling is perfect for the connoisseur. Above all they're just so much fun!"
