• 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 $29.95/year 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).

I have been sitting on this project too long and it has taken a back seat to my One Design. This is a complete project with Wolf/Whitman style landing gear. Upper wing needs some recondition work but minor. No lower wing. I have a completed set of ribs for top and bottom built up from Aviat plans and they are nice. Everything on this plane is Aerotek Pitts factory parts. It is all here.

Lots of extras that I have been collecting like Raven header tank and carbon fiber nose bowl, CF seat back, Aero Graphic fairings throughout. NEW full canopy with all the hardware. I don't have another airplane in my plans for a while. Take this away.

I also went through the parts catalog and ordered all new hardware and organized it chapter by chapter.

If you are local in So Cal and want a Pitts S1S Factory fuselage project then this is it. I have spent somewhere close to 9k on this project. Come make me an offer and take it away.

I'm not ready to part it out yet even though it's worth more money that way.

Also forgot to add that I have Aerographic S1T style cowl doors along with the Aerographic CF split nose bowl. Tons of cool stuff with this project. Maybe I should keep it and actually build it?
