Past Years History

Wings in the shop

Big Sky Stearman has been repairing and restoring Stearmans and antique aircraft for over 30 years. It began when Rev. Claude G. Pike brought home a derelict crop-duster in 1977. Claude and his two sons, John and Ted, had always been fascinated by antique aircraft and it was their dream to restore one. Claude, an old wooden boat builder, quickly had a set of wings built for the project. They realized opportunity was knocking and developed the industry that has provided Stearman wood services for so many. Their interest in antique aircraft resulted in the restoration of many aircraft and an interesting collection of projects over the years. Big Sky Stearman continues to prepare for the next generation of Stearman owners as that classic airplane soldiers on.
