• 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 think im sold on the skybolt........I have not been in one yet but I would like to make it down to orlando to take a ride in one. We bought a pitts s2b about 3months ago and the guy sold it out from under us while the funds were getting ready to be wired out..........no big deal.......things happen for a reason......from things i have read the pitts would have probably been too much airplane for what we need.....the question I have is.......will the skybolt be competitive in the intermediate class and how is the forward visability on landing? Also would you say the skybolt is comparable to an eagle or a pitts........I would like to drop in a io540 if the wife will spring for the $ or the 360 if not.........wich brings up another question...........is the 540 overkill for intermediate aerobatic compatition in the skybolt?
