    • 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.
    • 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.

Hey All,

I should start by saying I am new to forum, I am an Australian who recently moved out the America and have always loved Bi planes. I am hoping to build myself one of the airdrome replica fighters eventually but I need to save up my pennies, I am making money as an A&P whilst I am out here.

I have a customer from Turkey who I am shipping a steen skybolt to, he needs a ballistic chute fitted to it so would some information from anyone who has done this to a skybolt?

ALSO he wants a nose wheel fitted, I thought this what not an option but if any one knows otherwise or could provide some information on it that would be really really great.

Many thanks and hello to all
