A preliminary first flight was made in late Aug 1924, piloted by Clayton Brukner, and an official first flight was made on 21 October 1924, piloted by Tex LaGrone.
 
Only one WACO 8 was ever sold for $4,500 to an aerial photo company in Kansas City and it was eventually used to aerially map the Ozarks. It was eventually destroyed in a landing accident.
 
One other Waco 8 was uncompleted.
