             Aeronca, a division of Magellan Aerospace Corporation, and a leading manufacturer of aircraft components and other aerospace technologies, was founded in Cincinnati in 1928 and was moved to Middletown in 1940 following the disastrous 1937 Ohio River flood.

             For Aeronca, like many other companies in Middletown, its success has been largely influenced by the city’s close proximity to I-75, the Cincinnati and Dayton international airports, and Middletown’s own Hook Field. “We have a tremendous advantage, by being able to choose from a variety of air freight providers,” said Keith Wyman, Aeronca’s Director of Marketing.

             “Aeronca also benefits from the large pool of experienced aerospace talent in the region, and a very high quality work ethic,” Wyman said.

             “We’ve also enjoyed a fine working relationship with the Middletown Economic Development Corporation, the City of Middletown and the Economic Development Department of the State of Ohio,” Wyman added.

            Aeronca is located on 39 acres of land adjacent to Hook Field. It was the first U S company to market light and affordable general aviation aircraft. Aeronca is currently expanding to accommodate additional office space and manufacturing. This expansion sets the stage for future growth and will smooth the manufacturing flow of acoustically treated systems in Beta 21S, a titanium alloy with unique and superior mechanical properties. Aeronca is a primary supplier to Hurel-Hispano, a SNECMA Group Company, located in Le Havre, France.

In July, 2002, Aeronca received the “Excellence in Exporting” Award from Ohio Governor Bob Taft.
