• 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.

On my S1S (actually S-1-C with sparcraft wings)I have plywood seat. Two piece, that I like because they are east to remove when needed. I just don't have enough room with a parachute.
Can't use a seat pack because head almost touches canopy without parachute. With chair type I don't have much leg room.
Thinking of replacing the plywood with aluminum, but it seemsa lot of work for results that may or may not be good.
Has anyone done this? If so was it worth the trouble?
