To Our Waco Family, Partners and Customers,
First, let us say Thank You.
Thank you to all the nurses, doctors, hospitals, and healthcare providers here and around the world who are tirelessly fighting the spread of COVID-19; putting themselves and their family’s lives at risk to protect ours. Thank you to all the truckers, stockers, cashiers, and baggers hauling the loads who are stocking the grocery shelves and bagging our purchases every day in the stores. Thank you to the restaurant kitchen teams, servers, dishwashers who are cooking, cleaning, and serving in our local communities and around the globe.
Thank you for all the men and women in uniform working to serve and protect us in our local communities and around the world. And thank you for all our team members at WACO who are ready and willing to work during one of the most unsettling times of our lives.
These past weeks have been among the most unsettling and emotional times any of us can remember in our lifetime. The impact of the Coronavirus outbreak has been felt by individuals, families, communities, and businesses across the United States and the world.
WACO Aircraft Corp. has been ordered to close per the Stay-At-Home Order (Executive Order 2020-21) so our manufacturing facility in Battle Creek, Michigan, will be closed from March 24th until April 13th to do our part in the fight against the continued spread of the Coronavirus. Our team will continue to be paid during this closure period.
The Centennial Aircraft department remains ready to assist you in every way possible during this difficult period. Our service department is available over the phone to answer technical questions and assist during an AOG. Of course, our website remains open for spare parts orders. For AOG assistance please call Joe @ 517-490-3814
At WACO, we believe there are moments in our lives which should be defined by our vision, mission, values, hopes and dreams, not by a virus.
Be safe and we will get through these challenging times together.
the skilled craftsmen at WACO Aircraft produce the finest aircraft in the world.
WACO Aircraft is the only FAA Approved manufacturer of sport biplanes worldwide.
TO SHARE OUR PASSION FOR CREATING UNIQUE AIRCRAFT WITH THE WORLD.
WE ARE THE LEADER IN BUILDING HANDCRAFTED AIRPLANES WHICH PROVIDE THE ULTIMATE SENSE OF ADVENTURE.
YES ATTITUDE - EXCELLENCE - INNOVATION
It takes a large, dedicated team of experienced craftsmen at the WACO factory in Battle Creek, Michigan, to expertly employ our handcrafted techniques, and we’ve been doing it since 1983.
WACO Aircraft Corporation currently produces two biplanes; the WACO YMF-5 and the Great Lakes 2T-1A-2. These biplanes are produced by hand - based on original techniques from the 1920's and 1930's. Although they may appear to be original aircraft, these flying machines are brand new and feature modern technology for improved flying characteristics and safety.
