• 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.

Pitts Model 12 is it really the Baddest AeroBi

I have been struggling like a 1 1/2 ton woman trying to fit in the bed of a 1 ton pickup over the choice of Model 12 or Skybolt Radial. I have read almost everything on the net about both and am leaning toward the 12. I'm 6'3 225 and I need space/resonable comfort. What are the experts here saying about the reason somebody would choose one over the other. Anybody know of a current finished or in progress build of the 12/ Rad. Bolt in the Kansas City Missouri area (I know I need to see them in person).
