• 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.

I have heard that manyStearman flyers/owners turn their noses up in the air when the subject ofreplicas of 'their' planesarise.

With Wacos' being Certified airplanes, does the Waco community have a similar deal going on, or is home building encouraged?

Personaly I think that kind of snobbish elitist attitude is harmful to aviationin the long term. A homebuiltreplica of a cert' plane built from the ground up impresses me far more than a guy with a fat wallet[no disrespect to Waco owners in generalintended].
