• 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.

NORD Stampe SV4C


Some BIG thing come in small packages

I’ve spent the last several months helping a buddy do a total restoration of a Stampe with the Renault EP03 engine. It’s been fun but difficult restoration with little to no detailed manuals written in French.

It’s really a neat airplane with a working air starter that is regenerated by a small engine driven compressor.

It’s a solid airplane with large dual flying wires and dual cable controls.

Just need to clean up the wings and cowling, then assemble everything and go fly.

Completed the engine test run Friday.
