Hawker Siddeley Aircraft was founded in 1935 when Hawker Aircraft bought Armstrong Siddeley and Armstrong Whitworth Aircraft. The company also bought A.V. Roe (Avro) and the Gloster Aircraft Company.
During WWII the company was very important building the famous Hawker Hurricane.
In 1945 HS bought Victory Aircraft of Malton, Ontario, Canada and formed Avro Canada.
In 1948 the company changed its name to the Hawker Siddeley Group and the engine company merged with Bristol engines in 1959 to become Bristol Siddeley and in the late 1950s the British Government decided that the number of aircraft companies in the UK were to large for the number of projects and encouraged HS to purchase Folland, deHavilland and Blackburn aircraft. With individual names being dropped by 1963 to become Hawker Siddeley or HS.
HS produced a number of civil as well as military aircraft.
Military aircraft included the Harrier, Nimrod, Hawk, Argosy, Buccaneer, Gnat, Hunter, and Vulcan aircraft.
Civil aircraft include the Trident, HS125 business jet, HS748 and HS146 (later the BAE 146 / RJ) as well as building wings for Airbus aircraft.
