Panel-Mounted GPS Now Included On New Biplanes
Hot on the heels of its recent transfer of ownership, WACO
Classic Aircraft Corporation told ANN this weekend that all newly
manufactured WACO YMF biplanes now feature an updated Garmin
avionics panel, including panel mounted GPS with moving map.
A stainless steel exhaust system is also standard on all new
production WACOs, the company added.
As ANN reported, the planemaker announced in
June that Peter F. Bowers was its new owner. Company officials said
at the time its new management team would continue to combine
traditional aircraft manufacturing, and technological advancements
in its planes, as well as providing service and support of existing
WACO aircraft and other vintage and historic planes.
Based in Battle Creek, MI, WACO Classic Aircraft Corporation is
the world’s only manufacturer of new FAA-certified 1930s-era
classic biplanes, and currently produces the WACO YMF-5 Super.
