• 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.

Well, the first new airplane to fly from the shop in 2008 is a Pitts S-1D built by Buddy Moman. Buddy began building the airplane some eleven years ago and not too long ago, brought it to us for cover and paint. As you can see, it really looks great! Buddy made the first flight this morning and made another flight this afternoon. All is going very well, runs great but needs a couple more inches of pitch in the prop which we will try to get done next week. Congratulations to Buddy on his airplane and a great first flight!


BTW, I posted this here because the forum controls would not let me create a new topic in the S-1C and S-1SS section.
