• 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.

My Acroduster 2's new owner don't talk much, like not at all. Got an e-mail yesterday, wondered if I knew where he might get a front windshield? In passing said he now has 25 hours in her and doing fine although it too cold to fly right now. I delivered it in Dec. of 2020 with 11 hours on the Frankengine so I was happy to hear it was ok for sure. I have a couple old windshields but forget which one I had put on the Dusters front pit. With both a single and 2-place canopy that had been on both airplanes and several other windshields that I tried on both trying to get them right, the sheet metal on both looked like swiss cheese..... Anyway, I only had the front pit opened with windshield for 2 flights. With 2 people on hot day with 160 ponies the IO320B1A didn't cut it in IMHOP. His original intent was a bigger engine so I don't know? Anyway it is his now and he's doing well. I'm happy for both him and her. I think the right front screen went with the tu-holer? If I still have something that will work I'll give it to him.......IF he can afford the shipping.
