• 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 purchased a Pitts S-1s last February, which has sparcraft wings. I just completed an annual condition inspection helping out my local shop. I really wasn't able to see well enough to see the details of the wings. I had previously built an S-1c back in 1969, so I am familiar with the built up rib wings, but I have never seen a sparcraft wing uncovered. If anyone has any information concerning the wings, please let me know. I bought the Pitts to have something to fly while I build my Skybolt, which I just started.
