• 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).

Is the extra 300 canopy the same as the skybolts?

Not hardly. A friend cracked his. He reported that the replacement cost $16,000. German plastic must have some gold mixed in. Am not aware of any US FAA-PMA suppliers for the canopy plastic for the certificated Extras, but I think that the Experimental Exhibition owners have a source for plastic that works.

Best of luck,

Wes

It's the "we know you can barely afford it" tax so here's the price. Same thing for every single high end race car I've worked on unfortunately.

The Extra at my airport lost its canopy; it took a while to get one. Luckily it did not hit anything on the plane or ground when it went skydiving.
