• 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).

Hi all. Have just started building a standard skybolt and hope to power it with 540. Started small with brake pedals,rudder pedals and now working on the gear truss (I am gas welding). Got some great ideas from Al Rice's web sight before I found this forum.
I live in Christchurch New Zealand so materials are very expensive to get here.
Made my first trip to Oshkosh this year and am looking forward to returning next year and meeting some of you.
Also looking forward to contributing to the forum as my knowledge grows.
