• 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).

FREE Pitts S-1 spruce wing spars, glued up ailerons, some ribs (compression & others) leading edge clamps, tons of wooden blocks & bits. It all came with my restoration project and I want it gone & don't want to just throw it out. Come pick it up in NW FL at 2R4 NW of Pensacola. [email protected]

I was in the middle of making a deal on a set of wings and I had to think hard... just for a minute.

Ailerons are S stuff, ribs are as well. Can’t really tell on the spars. If there’s an easy way, let me know. Flat bottoms? Here’s the spars.

The spars have an equal bevel angle top and bottom on S-1S.
6 degrees bottom wing and 8 1/2 degrees top wing.
