• 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.

lowering the rear seat in a ac2

I am new to the forums so hello everyone.I just purchased a ac2 project.
My issue is that I am 6'6" tall ,so when I sit on a parachute my shoulders and head are to high in the hole. I have found a softie parachute i can get that packs down to 2",and was planing to modify the rear seat as low as i can and sit the parachute as low to the fusalage as i can.

Has anyone heard of this being done before?

I was also wondering if it is possible to widen the sheet metal around the hole any?Edited by: joesmoe
