• 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.

I plan to locate my pitot tube on the lower wing for convenience and ease of installation with the understanding that it could easily get "bumped".
I was wondering if there is a preferred location in the Skybolt for the static port. Is there any problem in locating the static port behind the rear instrument panel? I would imagine the air would be relatively stagnant in this area.
