• 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.

Mr. Gumbrell from Rowlett Texas. I just noticed you are our newest member and I would like to welcome you to our site.
OK, in reality, in reading your profile I see you are into powered parachutes, I cannot help myself, I have to ask this question, "what are you looking for on this site?" Are you considering building something with "real" wings? I am just curious as to what it is about this site that would appeal to you. I noticed we have had a couple of new members who want to build an RV. That got my mind to going as it really did not make a lot of sense, and now, a powered parachute?? . . . I can't stand it any longer!! Yesterday I saw a guy on the Today show that is jumping out of airplanes and gliding around in a little plastic suit with winglets on it. 3:1 glide ratio!! He is planning on jumping with no parachute and gliding in for a landing in his plastic suit - - - - I expect him to be joining our forum this week - - - I also expect he won't be here much longer than his first landing. . . . . . ;))))
