• 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).

I've been flying my skybolt and have about ten hours in it. The only complaint I have is I am being blasted on the top of my head by the wind. If I slump lower, or lean forward into the cockpit I can stop some of it. If I put my hand on the top of the windshield I can stop all of it. Can you adjust the windshield height, or will I need to make a taller windshield? I only need about three inches of height to stop the pounding. The complaint from the front cockpit is that the wind blast is hitting the back of the head and wanting to pull the head upward. It also appears that if you put your hand on top of the front windshield; likeI did in the rear;the problem goes away. Anyone ever had a similar problem?
