• 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.

Has anyone purchased the Pitts Spruce kit from Aircraft Spruce? I have, but am a little confused as to what some of the material is intended for. I've asked Aircraft Spruce for help but they say they don't know. Included in the package are 6 boards 1/4" thick by 6" wide and 6' long. I think these are intended to be ripped down to 1/4" square strips and used for the wing rib material. Then, also included are two boards 1/4" thick by 6" wide and 10' long. I do not know what these boards are for. I'm building from Steen Areo Lab plans and no where do I see a requirement for some 1/4" thick spruce about 10' long. I'm ready to start building ribs but hesitate to start cutting until I know what all the material is for.
