• 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.

Hello all, I'm considering buying an S-1S, or possibly T. I'm got 20-30 hrs in an S2-B and C, but it was a few years ago, and I'm looking for just a couple more hours before I fly mine (if I end up getting one). I was told by an insurance company that I'm insurable with the time I have, but I'd feel better if I had some more recent pitts time. I live in Sioux Falls, SD, and would prefer not to travel too far because of my work schedule. Any suggestions?
