Waco UIC

waco-uic

 

Waco replaced the QDC in 1933 with its most successful cabin design, the UIC. Powered by a 210-horsepower Continental radial engine, the UIC was a four-person biplane with a conventional fixed tail wheel landing gear. The well-appointed cabin was accessed by automobile-style doors on each side, with a pair of individual front seats and a roomy rear bench seat for another two passengers.

The UIC's fabric-covered fuselage was constructed from welded steel tubing, shaped with wooden formers and stringers while the wings were fabricated with spruce spars, spruce and wooden ribs, and aluminium edges. Ailerons on both wings were covered in aluminium and connected with push-pull struts that operated them in pairs. The UIC's stable handling characteristics were considered to be forgiving, with good performance. Delivered with a full set of flight controls and instrumentation, the UIC was priced at a modest $6,000, well within the reach of smaller corporations and airlines.
WACO delivered 83 UICs before replacing the model with the UKC/YKC/CJC series of cabin aircraft in 1934.
