• 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.

Hi! Since it's 112 F in the garage here in Phoenix, I'd rather talk about building my airplane from the comfort of an air conditioned housethan actually do any of it. At least for about 6 more weeks.
The airplane is an Acro Sport 2 that I bought 70% completed from a retired gentleman. I still need to build the ailerons and upper wing panels, hang and plumb and engine and prop and cover the thing. I saw an Acro Sport 2 on the cover of Sport Aviation when I was a kid and thought they looked cool. When I saw one for the first time as an adult, it looked much smaller. And more difficult to build. And more expensive. But the build schedule puts me at a first flight in the spring of 2008.

Later if all I do is spend time on the computer instead of making spruce sawdust.
