• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Dang...if I wasn't in the middle of retiring and moving everything 3000 miles, I'd be interested in it.
Looks nice.

I looked at this plane. Too bad they are removing the engine but they feel it is worth more separated. It has inverted fuel and oil.

I haven’t inspected this plane, but I flew it several years ago and I knew the owner. I know he didn’t skimp at all on maintenance. Sadly, he was killed while flying a FlyBaby that was modified to look like a WWI German airplane. His widow was left with the Pitts, and the fellow that bought it just wanted the engine. Everything behind the firewall looks nice, but again, that’s based on a walk-around and memory, not a detailed pre-buy.

I do remember that this airplane had rubber gap seals in between the horizontal stab and elevator, and between the vertical stab and rudder. Friction between the gap seals and the moveable surfaces required much higher control pressures than is normal for an S-1, but eliminating the gap seals would fix that problem. This airplane has hinge straps on the tail and includes a locking, non-steerable tailwheel.

I should NOT click on this thread. I had a Red & White one and always wanted a White & Red but I fear time has passed me buy. Someone should jump on this, the C is a very sweat ride. If someone close to Cumberland Md. buys it I'll offer free space in the corner of my hangar, help with engine install and won't even ask to fly it.
It makes me feel younger just looking at it's picture.:D

Sorry my friend but it's exactly what I do NOT need. I'm close to getting the A-Duster going again and that is much closer to my speed.

Not to mention that I'm BROKE! I'm thankful for what I have. (life is easier that way);)

My brain says 'no'. My wallet says 'no'.

I’d buy her and restore to fly, but we’re looking at about 20k AUD just to purchase and land it here. My last S1s owes me 31k AUD delivered before restoration and engine!! We get absolutely screwed

I even have room but everything else applies. Thankfully the guy with the pitchfork has less influence on me lately.
