Situated on Long Island, New York, General Aircraft Corporation produced the Skyfarer two-seat cabin monoplane with simplified controls in 1941, but sold manufacturing rights to Grand Rapids Industries Inc. in 1943. GAC built Waco CG-4A gliders for the USAAF in the Second World War. A company with the same name, but based at El Segundo, California, announced plans in 1969 for a 36- seat STOL transport, the GAC-100, powered by four Pratt & Whitney PT6A-40 turboprop engines.
