• 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.

Hello All

My apologies for the delayed introduction. I have recently decided to build a biplane, I'll start in about a month, I'm 99% sure that it will be the Pitts S1-SS.

I am a first-time builder and I will probably buy some fabricated components. I have the Steen CAD plans but I would like to change a few things. I like the look of the Wolf modifications (cowl, gear and tail) and I am interested in fitting them, whilst also trying not to get in over my head.

I am currently just trying to learn as much as possible and this forum, according to my girlfriend, has stopped me looking permanently confused.
