Scottish Aviation Limited was a Scottish aircraft manufacturer, based at Prestwick in South Ayrshire. It was originally a flying school operator, but the company took on maintenance work in 1938. During WW2, Scottish Aviation was involved in aviation, including maintenance and conversion of the Consolidated Liberator bomber. Post war it built robust military STOL utility aircraft such as the Pioneer and larger Twin Pioneer. Much later the company built some Jetstream turboprop transport and navigational training aircraft following the collapse of the Handley Page Aircraft Company (which designed the type). It built Bulldog trainers after the demise of their original manufacturer, Beagle Aircraft Limited. Scottish Aviation merged with the British Aircraft Corporation, Hawker Siddeley Aviation, and Hawker Siddeley Dynamics to form British Aerospace in 1977. Much of the former Scottish Aviation assets now belong to Spirit AeroSystems.
