• 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.

The skybolt I own came with a pile of seat cushion in the seat pan. I have tried my security on top of them and discovered I like being a little higher (9" of cushion) but did not like being pushed closer to the panel. I am loooking at seat packs but they do not lift the 9 inches I want. I am 5 ft 9 in. and 176 lbs. What have others found that works? I am not without a chute using the 9 inches of cushion and a lumbar support on the back this workrs welll but no chute and not permanant.
