Waco AQC


Manufactured from 1936, sixty-eight AQC-6 (ATC 598) were built.
The ZQC-6 model (285 hp Jacobs L-5MB engine) could be converted to an AQC-6 (330 hp Jacobs L-6MB).

At least two AQC-6 Freighter aircraft and eight ZQC-6 Freighter aircraft were ordered through Fleet Aircraft and built for use in Canada with additional freight doors on both sides of the fuselage and equipped for floats. Additional aircraft may have been modified. CF-BDW appears as EGC-7 in some regs.
Twenty EQC-6 were built in 1936 (ATC 597) for $9,650. The USCG used three EQC-6 bought from Waco as J2W-1 (V157, V157, and V159). One ZQC-6 was impressed by the USAAF as UC-72Q and five as UC-72H in 1942. Additional aircraft impressed by the US Navy were undesignated.
