• 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 Everyone,

I have decided to purchase a Skybolt. I've done a lot of reading on this forum and on the Steen website. I'm going to start the search for my new/first airplane.

Just wondering if there is anything specific I should watch out for. You all seem to have some experience with this aircraft, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

I've been reading about the Landing Gear options, and now I'm not sure which type of gear is actually better.

Thanks a bunch!
