• 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.

While looking at a builder's beautiful, just completed Skybolt at the Steen tent at SNF last week, David Stone advised me that I should consider using the Firebolt cowl instead of the standard Skybolt/Comanche. He says there is a 10-15mph increase with the Firebolt cowl. It was installed on the display Skybolt and I thought it looked good. Something to think about.
