Welcome to British Aviation
- Projects to Production.
The objective of this web site is to attempt to identify and catalogue all aircraft designs that have
emanated from the United Kingdom, whether design projects that never left the drawing board, one off prototypes or production
types. Whilst attempting to be as complete as possible, this list can never hope to be definitive. All types that resulted
in hardware should eventually be able to be tracked down, but evidence of many unbuilt projects has been lost over time, either
accidentally or by deliberate destruction of material.
This now the second iteration of
this web site and still currently only covers the letter 'A', but "basic" pages have been added for all the
predicted company entries. See the version history for further details. It has been a long road getting this far but hopefully the passage through the rest of the alphabet
will run fast and smooth. Due to the shear number
of pages on this site I have had to split it into a series of sub-sites. The user will see a redirect notice as it moves between
them, but hopefully this will only be momentary and not too irritating.
