• 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.

New Guy Here!!! I just traded my cessna 120 that was my first plane, ownedit for a little over 2 years and 210 tach hrs,for a Skybolt ( n 101 DT "Death Trap"). It's been sitting in a hangar in Sanford for about 10 years. New Paint and fabric was done before he decided to sell it. Has a HIO 360 CIA (205 hp angle valve).I am going thru the motor now.Trying to get the components that need overhaul sent out first .
I do have some questions about replcement bungees,size ,count etc... also Lord Mounts,and how to make some comfortable seats.

Thanks ,Death Trap
