• 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).

Gentlemen, the EAA biplane I'm buying did not have shoulder harnesses installed. I have ordered them and will soon be installing them. I have read that the anchor point can be 5 degree down to 30 degree up. Can I safely anchor them to the frame rail just behind the seat? This anchor point would be approximately 5-8 inches below the top of my shoulder. Anchoring somewhere in the rear of the fuselage would require a lot of extra work HOWEVER, if it will make it significantly safer I'll do it. Thanks again to everyone for your assistance. - Chris
