Founded: 1933 (as Percival Aircraft Co.)
Defunct: 1959
Headquarters: Luton, Bedfordshire, UK

Hunting Aircraft was a British aircraft manufacturer, that produced light training aircraft and initially designed the BAC 1-11 jet airliner. The company, based in Luton, merged with other companies to form the British Aircraft Corporation in 1959.

History

The company was originally formed as Percival Aircraft Co. in Gravesend in 1933 by Edgar Percival to produce his own designs. Restructured in 1936, it became Percival Aircraft Ltd, and moved to Luton. The company became part of the Hunting Group in 1944. Percival, who had resigned from the board to serve in the RAFVR during the war sold his remaining interest in the company at that point.

Changing its name to Hunting Percival Aircraft in 1954 and finally to Hunting Aircraft in 1957 the company merged with the Bristol Aeroplane Company, English Electric and Vickers-Armstrongs in 1959 to form the British Aircraft Corporation (BAC), later to become part of British Aerospace, now BAE Systems.
