We are also a great resource for non biplane users, since many GA aircraft are built the same way (fabric and tube construction).

I may be selling my Bolt in order to buy a traveling airplane. I am not 100% but still exploring my options. I have a 76 IO-360 solid crank, open cockpit, 1000 TT airframe and SNEW engine. NDH. Open cockpit 1100# mt. Basic airplane, has flaking paint due to brittle enamel. My IA is fine with it and would not let me recover it based on the quality of the fabric. I do not have pics, flyers etc. Please email me at "[email protected]" if interested in talking more.

I love my Acroduster but for rides and kids nothing beats a Cub or similar. I was out at the grass strip hopping rides for kids yesterday in my friends j3 and we could get about 4 kids done in an hour with everybody having a grand time, including me. Gas cost me 20 bucks an hour and we just invited friends and family over to get their ride for free. Doing the same thing the next few days. Could never have done that in my other canopy/complicated harness bipes. I bet an open cockpit low powered Hatz would be a good choice too. Happy hunting.

And Piet is not a good ride for hopping passengers. The front cockpit is a real bear.

Wow guys nice aircraft, but all a little more than I am looking to spend at the moment. Got to get the Pitts going and that's taking a lot of my cash at the time.
That's why I am looking for a pietenpol or Sonerai or something like that at this time.

I would get a Champ or T Craft for giving rides over a Pete or Sonerai. All depends on load needed. Smaller homebuilts and grandkids would not be my favorite mix.
