• 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).

The newest single seat Pitts Model 12 has flown! The BEAST made it's first flight on March 23, 2009 with Carl Pascarell in command. Over the next 3 days, Carl completed the FAA required test flights and test flight hours. March 25, 2009, Bryan Jensen, the owner of the BEAST made 2 flights and was totally blown away by the performance. Both Carl and Bryan have tons of time in high performance acro airplanes and report the BEAST is the highest performance single engine airplane they have ever flown yet they felt perfectly at home in it from the first moment. Congrats to Bryan, Barrett Precision Engines, and the crew at JKE.
