    The Biplane Forum is a private community.

Skybolt Project

Hi, I'm a new member. I have a question about a Skybolt project I just picked up in Salt Lake. The project is well advanced with the fuselage and empennage powder coated and wing construction complete. The fellow I purchased it from had it for about a year. He purchased it from a woman whose husband died during the project. I believe she had it for a couple of years before selling. My problem is that I can't get any info on the builder. The fellow I bought it from just does not have any info - no names, locations or log book. Anyway, I would like opinions or suggestions on how difficult it may be getting an airworthyness certificate.

Also, if the original builder was a member of the Biplane forum, is it possible that anyone in the forum may recognize photos of the project?
