    Currently (as far as we know), we are the only authorized Skybolt biplane transition training in the USA. Located in Pompano Beach, Florida, if you are looking for Starduster, Pitts, Skybolt, or similar biplane transition training, let us know. We have an FAA approved LODA that allows us to provide biplane transition training in our experimental Skybolt.

    Check out our website at https://wolfeairshows.com for more information! Also, we have a Cessna 140 which allows us to give tailwheel signoffs (if you need one). All Skybolt training requires you to have a tailwheel signoff first...

    Until April, 2019 the Skybolt is undergoing condition inspection/upgrades.. and there is an airline job that keeps us busy... so contact us as soon as possible to reserve training times.

    I started watching the skybolt acro vid you have on youtube but had to shut it off in fear of having a seizure...…. why did you speed it up and just not let it play at normal speed?

    I would be very interested in what you had to get your homebuilt approved with a LODA. I am just finishing my CFI and would like to do this with my Starduster Too. My first call to the local FSDO left me with not much hope of doing it. Any info would be appreciated.

    Happy to pass on the LODA to this forum, as the local FSDO folks were very nice after the ramp check...
