• 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).

Fuselage Stringers

Hi All:

Of those of you whohave made your fuselage stringers, can you tell me what kind of wood you used and where did you get it. I'm building a Pitts S1C and am ready to start making the stringers. I'm questioning weather or not they have to be spruce. Spruce is so expensive.
