Classic Aero-TV: Recrafting A Classic - Flying The WACO YMF 5-D

Jim Campbell Gets His Hot Little Hands On A True Classic Airplane

E-I-C Note: The Aero-TV Team -- Jim, Tom, Nathan, Paul, The 'Other' Jim, Ashley, Birgit, Wes, Klyde, Anjin, and the rest of the aero-gnomes -- want to wish you Happy Holidays while we all pursue our own various and sundry holiday diversions. Our regular daily webcasting schedule will resume promptly on Monday, January 3rd, 2011. In the meantime, please enjoy this 'classic' episode of Aero-TV from the past year as we all recover from our various and sundry Christmas celebrations...

Running Aero-News is a tough busy gig... but there are times when it's pure joy... like those times when you get to climb into a 300HP Waco YMF 5-D bipe and head for Valhalla. Pity that poor Campbell guy... work, work, work!

On Monday, May 17th, 2010, WACO Classic Aircraft Corporation announced the FAA certification of the WACO YMF 5-D aircraft.  The updated WACO model is the culmination of nearly two years of engineering, development and testing.

The all-new FAA and EASA certified aircraft is built from the ground-up to customer specifications including color and paint scheme, leather and carpet, and avionics equipment.

Over 5000 labor hours of hand-built craftsmanship goes into each aircraft, providing customers with an array of updated features including the use of 4130 steel framing and modern hydraulic toe brakes.  The WACO YMF 5-D includes the computer-designed MT elliptical tip propeller and all-new, optional 300hp fuel-injected Jacobs radial engine to provide smoother, more optimized performance.

In addition, the aircraft features the optional top-of-the-line Garmin IFR instrument package including the all-glass Garmin G600 Advanced MFD display, two Garmin 430 WAAS GPS units, GI-106a VOR/LOC/GS/GPS indicator, and a Mid-Continent 2 ¼" backup attitude indicator with battery system.

Founded in 1983, the Classic Aircraft Corporation sought to recreate the fifty-year-old design into a modern aircraft certified to the original FAA type certificate from 1935. Using a talented engineering team from the likes of Piper, Taylorcraft, and Ford, the company premiered its first FAA certified model in March of 1986.  Join Aero-TV as President Peter Bowers introduces the latest WACO reincarnation to hit the market.
