classic & contemporary
A faithful homage to the Golden Age of aviation with robust, corrosion-resistant welded steel-tube structure; two staggered wings, one swept; and two open cockpits. These Golden Age features combine with modern design and safety standards with all-weather fabric skins, cockpit covers, cabin heater, and toe brakes.
Each Great Lakes by WACO is hand-built by experienced craftsmen to achieve the highest quality for lifetimes of adventures to come.
What distinguishes the pilot from the traveler is the passion for flight. It is the exhilaration of soaring above the surface of the earth. It is the wonder of exploring unrestricted movement in three dimensions, just because you can. And it is the joy that flows from the revelation that pilot and airplane are one.
The handcrafted approach to manufacturing a Great Lakes by WACO allows for much personalization. The Great Lakes is fully aerobatic, but you can add to its performance with a lightweight aerobatic battery. You can configure your Great Lakes for banner towing. Leather seats are available. An electronic attitude indicator can be installed in the rear cockpit, and airspeed and altimeter in the front.
