• 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).

After a rough year of injuries, Eric Clutton has reluctantly decided to put the original prototype FRED up for sale. The timing is right as on November 3rd, 2013, N4499Y (originally G-ASZY) will celebrate 50 years since its very first flight. That’s a milestone for any aircraft, especially a homebuilt one.

FRED would make a great addition to a museum or private collection and Eric would very much like to see it go back home to the UK. He’s asking $10,000, a fair price for such a well-maintained little plane with a great history and a purring Continental A-65 as you can see in this clip.
