• 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 just got an email from one of the guys that saw my website. He said that there was a Vedenyev M14 powered Skybolt hangared at an airport no more than a 45 minute drive from me.

He was stating that it had an initial climb of 6000'/minute and could sustain 4000'/minute.

I've gotta head on over there within a week or two and get me a ride.

I'll let you know what I find out.
