Quality First

Behind the hangar doors at the WACO Factory is a 30,000 sq. ft facility that uniquely combines traditional craftsmanship with the very latest technology.

All operations are literally under one roof. Here, more than 30 skilled individuals are busy at work crafting aircraft for some of the world’s most discerning individuals.

Engineers, craftsmen and industrial designers work together in a unique and seamless way that is remarkable in today’s aircraft industry.

In a mass-produced world, WACO Aircraft Company represents the exact opposite: the last bastion of hand-built excellence. Behind every stitch lies generations of knowledge and skill. 

It takes more than six months to build a WACO YMF, of which more than 50 percent involves handcraftsmanship. One of the secrets to this process is having an intimate knowledge of the materials’ properties and using them in the best possible way – something not always possible in mass production. So our aircraft are built from the start with materials in mind – leather, wood, metal, composites and more.

The WACO YMF is a brilliant celebration of this ongoing quest for quality and craftsmanship. Here, one in four people having been at WACO for more than 20 years. Each of these individuals is not just passing down their knowledge of timeless skills, but have a fierce sense of pride in their work. As a result, WACO people are able to stay true to the soul of the brand, despite the complexity – from idea to final aircraft.  That is why “Made by WACO” truly does stand for unparalleled quality and attention to detail – all in the quest to build the world’s most prestigious aircraft. 

This attention to quality extends from the aircraft we produce to the merchandise we wholeheartedly endorse and sell at our web store and catalog.
