• 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.

Folks- I am an Army Major serving in Iraq, who while back on leave have been looking at Biplanes. Have a crack at a solidSuper Baby Lakes, but more interestingly, a Witchawk though the Blanton Family. Going to Kansas to examine two of them, with a Vietnam era family friend who is rotary and fixed wing pilot. Also looked at acro dusters, PITTS etc...
I am a 90 hour pilot, who wants to reintegrate with my son following almost two years now in combat in Iraq. My entire family are pilots. Moving to San Antonio, where landings are easy and weather cooperative

What do we know about these Wichawks? They seem like a good design being dual, acrobatic and powered by an L-19 engine and 24 volt system. Ideas, comments?
