• 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.

I can finally say after a busy summer and about 6 months of doing nothing on my skybolt/firebolt, I am getting ready for a long winter of rib buildng.

Oh Yea I got engaged too. (Which had me very busy)
But she did help me get the shop cleaned up, so I can do some serious rib building.

Also I am flying down to AL this weekend for the pitts fly in, with my buddy in his Monster Pitts

8 hours of flight time in that thing should get my juices flowing!!!!!!
Anyone else going??

I will get some pics of my ribs once i get them pulled back out.
