• 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).

I'm building a two seat biplane of my own design, based on the idea of using a direct drive Chevrolet 350 engine.
Empty weight will be around 1300, gross 2000. Wing area about 200 sq.ft. Conventional construction; steel tube fuselage and tail, wood wings. The whole is somewhat reminiscent of a late 1920's design. It would also be suitable for a M14D radial - if I could afford one.


Fuselage and tail surfaces are done, some of the landing gear and all the wing ribs.uploads/20060914_053735_Front_fuse_top.JPG
