• 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.

So I put a deposit down on my first Pitts yesterday. An S1c with 160hp lycoming. Plane seems great. Need the conditional to come back looking solid and the deed will be done. All my time is tail dragger 250hr+ and mostly in older aircraft Cubs,Luscombe a Stearman. I also have been logging some time in a Kitfox IV speedster. I plan on doing some transition time (as much as I can afford-at least 5hrs) any other recomendations??? All advice welcome. Thanks
