de Havilland

The de Havilland Aircraft Company was a British aviation manufacturer founded in 1920 when Airco, of which Geoffrey de Havilland had been chief designer, was sold to the Birmingham Small Arms Company (BSA). De Havilland then set up a company under his name in September of that year at Stag Lane Aerodrome in Edgware, near London. The company later moved to Hatfield Aerodrome in Hertfordshire. Initially, de Havilland concentrated on single and two-seat biplanes, essentially continuing the DH line of aircraft built by Airco, but powered by de Havilland's own Gipsy engines. The high-performance designs and wooden construction methods culminated in the Mosquito of WW2. The Vampire jet fighter and trainer flew in 1943. After the war, the most important product was the first jet airliner, the Comet, but structural failures limited its success. In 1948 a large factory at Chester was taken over from Vickers-Armstrongs and produced a succession of de Havilland aircraft. de Havilland Holdings was the parent company by 1955, and was purchased by the Hawker Siddeley Group in 1960, with a de Havilland Division until 1965.
