• 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.

Hey guys.

The weather is warm and i've got the flying bug. Only problem is i'm knee deep in building. I was looking at buying a homebuilt on a budget to get someflying in this summer.

One plane i'm looking at has apparently been deregistered....what does it take to get an airworthiness in that situation. Or do you have to basically present yourself as the builder to get an experimental airworthiness cert.?
This plane is obviously plans built but has no records...not much info yet but i'm guessing the builder wanted to escape liability. I think the current owner is not the builder.
