• 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).

Decided to get some tailwheel time in a J3. Had a T-craft for years... sold it and have been flying 172s for a few years. : (
Heard about Van Sant years ago... only trouble... it was about and hour and forty-five minutes from home. Guess itisn't any trouble any more... yesterday Denise and I went up there so that I couldget checked out in the Cub.


It's one of the only places around that you can get checked out... check this out... in


A J3
or a Stearman
or a Great Lakes
or a Tiger Moth
and then rent it to fly.
BRILLIANT !


Anywho... had a great time flying the J3. I plan to get checked out in all of them. Not that often an average joe can fly beauties like these. Well worth the hour and forty-five minute drive.


Here are a few pictures.
