Ready, Set, Liftoff!

Each year, typically in the month of June, the National WACO club flies in to gather together at the Wyncoop Airport on Granville Road in Mount Vernon, Ohio. This gathering is comprised of those who are current owners of WACO planes, past owners, and admirers who have a passion for the Waco Aircraft Company and these dazzling aircrafts. Pilots and owners put in countless hours of restoration and maintenance to preserve the pristine condition of their biplanes. The national WACO club is considered the oldest aircraft club in the United States and was founded in 1958.


How Did This Become?

It all began with a group of gentlemen in the same place at the right time in Buffalo, NY where they discovered their passion and drive for constructing the ideal biplane became a unanimous ideal. In their 28 years of business in Troy, Ohio, the WACO Aircraft Company produced 62 different civillian biplanes that are still admired, owned, and cherished by people today

This is a relaxed get together of pilots flying their beloved aircrafts in and marvel at fellow club member's prized possessions.
