• 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).

He and his wife use to post here. I think the matching one his brother built had an accident.

How well do tall people fit in one of these? It seems like a great deal if it is currently flyable.

I'm 6'5", 200 lbs. I flew one several years ago. I fit alright but what I remember most was how narrow the cockpit was. There wasn't room for my elbows when I was tightening the belts. I had to stick my elbows kind of up and out of the cockpit. It was a pleasant flying little ship though.

This V-star and mine were made with 24in wide at seatback with smooth taper to lycoming engine nose bowl. Gives more room in cockpit, larger instrument panel, larger fuel tank. Lots of poor information from people without any knowledge of the plane. If interested just call the number in the add and get some factual info.
