Sud Aviation

Sud-Aviation, (Southern Aviation) was a French state-owned aircraft manufacturer, originating from the merger of Sud-Est (SNCASE, or Société nationale des constructions aéronautiques du sud-est) and Sud-Ouest (SNCASO or Société nationale des constructions aéronautiques du sud-ouest) in 1957. Both companies had themselves been formed from smaller privately owned corporations that had been nationalized into six regional design and manufacturing pools just prior to World War II. Sud-Est had built a series of aircraft including a passenger airliner, the Languedoc, the Alouette series of helicopters, and a fighter, the Mistral, a British de Havilland Vampire built under license. In 1951 Sud-Est started the design of a new jet-powered airliner which would eventually evolve into the Caravelle. Sud Aviation. After the merger into Sud Aviation, the new firm started on the design of a supersonic transport version of the Caravelle, known as the Super-Caravelle. However, the projected cost of the project was so high that Sud Aviation, at the direction of the French and British governments, formed a consortium with BAC in November 1962 to merge their design and production efforts to create the Concorde. Sud Aviation merged with Nord Aviation in 1970 to form the Aérospatiale company. Aérospatiale formed several large-scale international consortia, for example with British Aerospace and Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm to form Airbus, and ultimately merged into the European aerospace company EADS in 2000.
