WACO Classic Aircraft is making progress on the first Great Lakes biplane airframe, as well as the first airplane ordered by a customer.
The company says the project is moving into high gear with nearly all vendors online, all of the engineering updates approved, and drawing updates mostly complete. A team of students from the A. James Clark School of Engineering at the University of Maryland have soared to new heights in their quest for the Sikorsky Prize.
