Classic Aero-TV: Aquatic WACO Update - WACO YMF-5F Builds Appeal

From 2018 (YouTube Version): Float-Equipped Biplane Turns Heads At AirVenture

WACO Aircraft brought its latest airplane, the YMF-5F Floatplane, to AirVenture this summer.

When the aircraft was introduced last year, the company said that the combination of a new 300 HP engine, the new MT constant speed propeller and Aerocet 3400 Amphibious floats helped make this ambitious project a reality.

This blending of equipment has allowed WACO to build a great performing, exceptionally fun, and beautiful WACO Amphibious float plane, the YMF-5F (The "F" is for Float, and Fun).
 
In preliminary flight testing, performance both in the air and on the water have met and exceeded expectations, according to the company. The airplane exhibited water run times under 18 seconds, and in the air numbers nearly equal to conventional landing gear aircraft.

The standard aircraft is fully equipped for water operations and also features cutting edge Garmin Avionics including ADS-B compliant transponder (in & out), Garmin digital Com and the new Garmin G5. Other features include extensive anti corrosion measures, including the use of stainless steel fasteners and fully protected aluminum structures.
