• 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 $29.95/year 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).

  • If you have bought, sold or gained information from our Classifieds, please donate to Biplane Forum and give back.

I know it's not a biplane, but proceeds will help support my biplane habit.:)
More pic's on Barnstormers.
1991 North Star, C-FGVD , O320 160hp, 1006 TT, 170 TTS bulk & top w/new 160 hp pistons. Chrome cyls. This was the first prototype North Star, built at CF Ltd., Shown at S&F and Osh, 2 1/2" wider than Cub, 2 doors + Baggage door, Dynafocal swing out , Borer prop, Hydraulic shock struts, tall gear, Scott 3200, stronger than a Cub, better performance, more payload, longer range, easier to work on, "homebuilt " so no certified inspection costs or mod restrictions.
Has been flown on wheels skis & floats & does show some cosmetic wear externally, but has spent most of it's life in a hanger when not flying so is in great shape. Interior and upholstery is in excellent shape. The owner we built it for quit flying for medical reasons and I bought it back from him. I don't really want to sell it but have decided to so I can invest in new design work I am doing. With it's 160 hp and Borer prop, takeoff & climb is awesome. I have it in the shop now getting it ready to sell, installing new windshield and side windows, clean up and inspection. Since it's a "homebuilt" you get away from certified inspection costs and mod restrictions! $80,000 USD
