• 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.

Hi guys,
My name is Neil Sidders. I began building my Acro II in October of 87. Most of the building was complete when it got pushed aside to raise my two daughters. For that I have no regrets as I have had the time of my life. In the time I was able to work on the plane I managed to write numerous articles for the Acro Sport Newsletter and I managed to log some time in the proto type as well. Prior to starting on the Acro II, I built a Sonerai II and flew it for several years.
I began working out of town several years ago, so the Acro has been untouched for some time. As of Jan. 1, I retired from General Motors after 32 years as a tool & die maker. I intend to get back to the Acro very soon, having completed the restoration of a Triumph motorcycle I've owned since highschool.
