• 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.

Hiya, well I have watched this a while, and it appears to be quite active, which ties in with me getting back into building, so I thought I should join.
Small intro,
I am a Canadian, west coast, but living in Dubai the last 5 years.
I have owned a few Pitts, a couple S1, an Eagle, and a few monoplanes. I built Jim LeRoys first set of wings.
I also started the company which became Raven Aircraft, although I have not been involved directly for many years. We called it Precision at the time. I am pretty happy to see where it has gone though.
I raced a Pitts at Reno, great fun! and built a pretty radical 2 seat Pitts style machine. I have basically been out of competition and airshow aerobatics now for 10 years, time to get back in!
I like the Model 12, alot, and so far its top of my list to get building again, but I am still up in the air regards the engine....
Living in Dubai, building may be a challenge,
I am amazed at the expertise on this forum, apparently this the place for performance biplane guys to be!
