• 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 $29.95/year 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).

Experimental, by builder. Completed 2011. In the early '80s, the Pitts factory made a limited number of S2S "kits"available for sale. They included just about everything needed to complete the airframe including the fuselage, wings, empennage, gear, wires, cowl, cabanes, motor mount, controls, push rods, bearings, bell cranks,etc. Lycoming AE IO540, 180SMOH, 8.3:1 pistons. Hartzel Aerobatic prop. (201) 214-3219 for more info and pix.

Ron is a friend and I couldn't help but feel compelled to snap some pics of his S2S for him to show the true condition of it, saying it's immaculate or pristine would be a true disservice to the outstanding condition of this plane.

My early '80's S2S fuselage didn't have a front seat frame. Beautiful aircraft.

Agreed beautiful aircraft but it is a shame to cut up the top of the instrument panel for that anti collision box. IMHO:)

It can be converted to its original configuration, complete with the almost useless wet compass, in 1/2 hour! (aside from traffic, the unit has an accurate compass)
The first time that you're on the up line of a hammerhead and you see a traffic alert less than a mile away from the aircraft, you might change your mind about keeping it in the panel!
