Premier Restorations Specialists and Brokers of Fine Aircraft
Centennial Aircraft Services was founded in 1985 as a Subsidiary of WACO Classic Aircraft Company, and from that time it has remained at the pinnacle of restoration & maintenance of collectors' aircraft. Today, Centennial is internationally acknowledged as one of the foremost restoration companies of fine historic aircraft and culturally significant vintage aircraft.
The company has gone from strength to strength with a project list that is second to none - collectors and museums worldwide have examples of Centennial/Waco restored & maintained aircraft. The company is FAA approved, including a part 145 repair station license and Avionics repair and installation facility for all major brands.
Our wide range of expertise, including staff DER and DAR, and knowledge base developed over years of restoration projects, enables our dedicated engineers to professionally manage major restorations, modifications, fabrication of custom parts that are no longer available, overhaul and repair to all types of aircraft. Whether wood and fabric or metal structures, our work is of the highest possible standards using traditional materials and only the most skilled craftsman and original techniques to produce an aircraft of distinction.
Centennial's specialties include all biplanes, WWI, WWII airplanes, wartime Bombers, Fighters, Trainers, Seaplanes, and Transport aircraft, but Centennial/Waco talents are not just restricted to collector's airplanes. We also maintain a constant flow of modern GA aircraft, their owners appreciating our skills and excellent quality work at a competitive price.
Our background in post restoration flight testing and adjustments results in an aircraft that flies as the manufacturer intended.
We provide discreet and professional services for the buyers and sellers of rare and unique aircraft. We also provide independent inspections and appraisal services.
Our reputation for finding unique aircraft for private clients and museums is renowned. We are continually discovering rare aircraft to meet collector's requirements, including examples from the dawn of aviation to the fighters and bombers of WWI & WWII, to classic biplanes and the best hand-built modern aerobatic aircraft. The import, export and transportation of aircraft is a specialty that goes hand in hand with our dedication to the restoration of vintage and antique aircraft.
