• 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.

Hi all.
I live in Vegas and am the Director of Maintenance for a corporate flight department. I fell in love with the Skybolt the first time I saw one in my older brothers Sig Mfg R/C catalog. I didn't even know it was a "real" airplane until a couple of years later. That was back in 1980 or so.

My goal was to start building in June but I've missed that target already. I should be underway in Sept.

Looking forward to sharing your experiences.
