Why don't the pilots notice the things that are wrong? We do. We notice the pilot things that are wrong. If an aileron is laying on the ramp, we notice. Plane on fire? We notice. The actuator for the left side of the number three flight spoiler? Nope -- we wouldn't notice that, but a mechanic might.

Customer Testimonials

"It is an amazing biplane, very nice for aerobatics, and quite stable for a biplane."

"I really loved my Skybolt, but was operating an emergency room and putting in 100 hours a week, and had no time to fly. Now that I have been retired for 5 years, wish I had kept the biplane! It is an amazing biplane, very nice for aerobatics, and quite stable for a biplane (biplanes are noted for instability.) I learned to fly 60 years ago in the Royal Canadian Air Force, on Fleet 16B bipes. Overseas in 1943 I transferred to the RAF and did ops in Scotland and Ireland on 3 types of Spitfires, Hurricanes, and the last of the RAF biplane fighters, the Gloster Gladiator. In mid January 1945 I made the last operational flight of an RAF fighter biplane, in Gladiator N5592, on a weather recce flight. I have also flown a Tiger Moth and a Starduster. Just love biplanes! The 'Glad' was a wizard for aerobatics, with its 950hp Bristol and 4 flaps on the wings. Enclsoed is a check for your brochure. Don't intend on building another (I'm almost 80!) but always said that if I ever did build another plane, it would be a Skybolt! If you ever have a customer who wants a recommendation, give 'em my name and address. Have flown over 62 different planes, from Fleets to Wellington bombers, so I feel like I know airplanes! Cheers!"
