• 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).

What's weight limit on this one? Might be nice to have for first few test flights anyway.

This is the only weight info I can find in the manual.
So...I would assume a 200 lb max given that it lists a rate of descent for up to that weight

I've just begun acro training in a Pitts S2B, haven't done any acro in my AS2 yet. I'm interested in this chute, but don't know much about this stuff. What would it take to get it re-packed and current?
Thanks

You would have to take it to a parachute rigger. The one I knew in Texas charged $65 to repack. I think 65-80 is common
