WACO Classic Aircraft Corporation has officially unveiled the first conforming new production Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 by WACO. Much like the currently produced WACO YMF-5D, the new production 2T-1A is culmination of a dream and the offspring of an unequaled team of talented engineers, craftspersons and pilots. With the public outcry growing larger over the FAA's sudden financial demands to staff EAA's AirVenture, sources within the FAA suggest the current efforts may be but the tip of the iceberg. ANN has learned that there are, reportedly, extensive discussions within the FAA, as well as outright intent to seek fees for a great number of events and activities that the FAA now deems to be outside of "normal operations." The FAA has approved the extension of the service life of the Eclipse 500 & 550 aircraft to 20,000 hours / 20,000 cycles with unlimited calendar life. This provides the typical Eclipse Jet owner with over 50 years of safe operation. All this... and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
