• 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).

Yes, there are at least 2 mills in Europe, still making it to spec. We tell you how to order it for your project on our DVDs. The fabric being produced now meets Spec BS9F1 which is the accepted linen standard. We go over all this in the DVDs.

Are the specs for linen similar to Grade A cotton? I'd love to cover an airplane in linen some day...
