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.
At this time WACO Aircraft is not providing public tours of the factory due to internal reorganization of assembly and maintenance hangars. We encourage you to visit WACO Kitchen, which is located on the second floor of the factory and offers large observation windows into the assembly and maintenance hangars.
We plan to offer public tours again in the future, please stay tuned for updates.
Thank you for your understanding!
