• 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.

N80JR is for sale. We built this one for John Ross a noted author and firearms expert. Steve Wolf test flew it us and as I recall, it flew hands off from the first flight.
John stayed in touch over the years. He was devastated when his friend/mechanic passed out while driving up to the hangar allowing his truck to push the plane back. John was working on a new novel that was going to include 1920-30s Aviation as part of the storyline. John planned on having the model 12 repaired but passed away before getting it done.
The prop can be repaired as can the cowl and dings in the tail.
