• 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.

In a post on another forum i saw a reference to the Lionheart design, which was a Beech Staggerwing look-a-like made from composites. The fellow was saying it turned out to be very expensive but mentioned 4 were completed. I wondered if anyone had ever seen one up close.

I just got kind of curious...the website is still up but it looks like they do lots of composite work projects and design and not so much promoting of the lionheart design. They mention that it may be the most thoroughly engineered homebuilt. It was to seat 6.

Again...no one go to any trouble...just a curiousity if some made the fly-ins, etc.
