• 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).

Hi y'all,. I'm Mike Homa from Whitesboro TX and recently joined the forum.
I earned my private certificate back in the late 70's. Had planned to go commercial but it just didn't work out. Have always dreamt of getting a biplane one day. I had entertained the idea of building but at this point in my life at 68 I'd rather just buy . I am not current but will be soon. Have flown Cherokees, 150s and 172s and also have time in a Citabria.
I'm considering an Acro Sport 2, Starduster, Skybolt or Hatz. I know the specs on all of them but not having seat time in any of them my biggest question is will I fit. I'm 6'4 235. Hope someone can shed some light for me. Thoroughly enjoying the forum thus far.
