• 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).

Got to fly in the front seat of a new Extra 300L yesterday. In the turtledeck luggage area, the floorand back panels were both made of clear acrylic for inspection of the tail area. The pilot, Ben Freelove say's it's absolutely an inspection point on the checklist before every flight. I'd planned on sheet metal on the bottom and plywood on the back, but this seems like a no-brainer. Any thoughts?
