New owner for Waco Aircraft
Dimor Group Inc has acquired Waco Aircraft Corporation, manufacturer of the YMF-5 D/F and Great Lakes 2T-1A-2 ’retro’ biplanes. Dimor says it will continue to support the company and ‘further develop the market for such classic aircraft’ and has ‘planned projects that also include reproducing other landmarks in aviation history’. Distribution of the Waco range in Europe will be handled through a Dimor Group branch at Dübendorf Airport in Switzerland.
Waco President Peter Bowers, who will continue in his position with the company, said: “We are very pleased with the acquisition of Waco by Dimor Group and we firmly believe they will be a good steward of the Waco tradition and brand. We are looking forward to working together to build a great future for the company.”
