• 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.

hey gang,
In building up my Pitts S-1-D from parts and I find no stringers in all the stuff I bought. Now the plans show wood stringer from the tail to the rear seat. My fuselage is a little different and it has brackets for stringers going from the tail to the bay where the inst panel is.I heard some have used alum from hardware store for screen doors etc. Anyone have any thought on the matter?I guess wood will work but I don't have any plans except the ones from Steen Aerolab of the S-1-C.
