    • 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.
    • 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 all,

Skybolt builder in south Texas. I've not accomplished much so far except for a big pile of wing/aileron ribs in the garage. I'm hoping to start welding a fuselage up soon, but I'm kind of waiting on the temp in the garage to cool off a little.

Besides building Skybolt parts I am a student pilot, Citabria owner, aerospace engineer, and skydiver. Most of my other hobbies have taken a back seat to the building/flying thing lately.

I look forward to sharing with and learning from all of you. Thanks John for putting this much needed resource online.
