De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Ltd. (1920-1992)

Administrative history

De Havilland Aircraft Company was a British aviation company founded in 1920. Its Canadian subsidiary was founded in 1928 to build aircraft for the training of Canadian airmen and continued after the war to build its own designs suited to the harsh Canadian climate. De Havilland (Canada) was merged into Boeing of the United States in 1986, as Boeing Canada, de Havilland Division. In 1992 it was incorporated into the Bombardier group of companies and the Dash-8 remains in production.
