WACO INF

WACO INF

Did You Know?

  • Introduced in 1930, the INF was WACO's (Weaver Aircraft Co.) answer to customers looking for a bit more power in the economy model of the "F" series of aircraft.
  • The WACO INF was popular as a sportsman aircraft. The 125-horsepower motor and its maneuverability made it a popular aerobatic trainer.
  • The INF was also widely used by the Civilian Pilot Training Program, which prepared civilian pilots with basic aviation training to then enter the military, during the late 1930s.
  • Since this aircraft began as a civilian aircraft, it had to go through a rigorous series of inspections and perform aerobatic stress tests before it was accepted into the program.
