Miles

The original company was founded by Charles Powis and Jack Phillips as Philips and Powis Aircraft after meeting designer Fred Miles. The company was based on Woodley Aerodrome in Woodley, near Reading, Berkshire. In 1936 Rolls-Royce bought into the company and although aircraft were produced under the Miles name, it was not until 1943 that the firm became Miles Aircraft Limited when Rolls-Royce's interests were bought out. In 1947 the company aviation assets were purchased by Handley Page as Handley Page Reading. Handley Page produced the Miles-designed M.60 Marathon as the H.P.R.1 Marathon. In 1948, Frederick Miles founded F. G. Miles Limited who continued to produce aircraft under the Miles name. His company was based on two sites, Redhill aerodrome and Shoreham aerodrome. The aviation interests later merged with Auster Aircraft Limited into British Executive and General Aviation Limited (Beagle Aircraft) in 1961, initially as Beagle-Miles Ltd with George Miles as Chief Designer and Technical Director.
