• 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).

I am looking for a flying Skybolt in excellent condition for export .There are number for sale on the internet but I would appreciate any guidance on the purchase and people to contact who can inspect both airframe and engine in detail and carry out the export process at reasonable cost.
Thanks Andy

For anyone with concerns the airplance will be de- registered in the USA and registered again in Australia.

Have shortlisted a couple of Skybolts to be inspected on the east coast near Oahkosh - can anyone put me in touch with a certified A&M FAA inspector who may live on the east coast and interested in carry out pre- purchase inspections ?
