Trying to Decide which biplane

6 comments

New to Biplanes, not to aviation, and want the open cockpit experience

Thinking of a Great Lakes, but temped by the Waco Opinions?

The differences are many....

 

Great Lakes - smaller, more aerobatic, less lux, lower price point.

WACO YMF-5D or 5F - bigger (seats 3), some aerobatics, lux cruiser, moderate price point - Float option

 

Fee free to call or email me directly to talk airplans and fight options.

The Great Lakes is a wonderful biplane that does many things. It will do very nice acro one day, and land on a grass strip the next. It is a decent traveller for about 2 hours at a time. I flew mine clear across the country and it was an adventure. Hard to say which one is best for you, but I love my Great Lakes.

I have to say I'm prejudice. As much would love to have a Waco, my wallet will just not let it happen. I have owned my Great Lakes for 30 years now and have flown it almost 5000 hours. Before buying it I flew a Pitts S-2A (Good for hard Acro but nota cross country flier) and a Stearman (Too large and slow for serious cross country) and came up with a Lakes. I do a lot of formation, fun Acro, intro Biplane rides and have flown it FLA-PHX-SEA-LAX-LAS-FLA in 41 days with my wife. I couldn't be happier with it. I had it recovered 7 years ago, so I have seen all of it. It's a 2T-1A-2, which makes it 4 aileron/180 HP. Go fly one and you will be convinced if you want a Biplane. ---Red GL in FLA---

I have to piggy back on Jeffed6161. My Great Lakes just flew 1230 miles from Logan, Utah to KGTU Georgetown, Texas. Average altitude 6500'. Nary a problem. Love this airplane! Been flying for 50 years and this is my absolute favorite out of 7 owned aircraft.

       Can anyone help with finding parts for an elevator rib repair?  I have a bent/damaged rib in the left side elevator of 2T-1A-2 and I am looking for options for repair or replacement.  A donor part (complete elevator) from another 2T-1A-2 or just the rib itself are of interest.
