• 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.

I'm mounting a firebolt nosebowl to my Skybolt. What I have read in the old newsletters differs a bit with the Steen plans. The firebolt nosebowl which I bought from steen aerolab looks like a Pitts nosebowl. I know that there is a drop from the front instrument panel, but it seems to be alot compared to the commanche style nosebowl. Any help?
