Aeronca, best known for light aircraft ceased production of aircraft in 1951, and in 1954 sold the Champion design to the new Champion Aircraft Corporation of Osceola, Wisconsin.
Aeronca now builds components for aerospace companies including Boeing, Northrop, Lockheed and Airbus. In its 23-year history as a general aviation and military aviation manufacturer, Aeronca produced 17,408 aircraft spanning 55 different models but the company will be forever best known as the creator of “The Flying Bathtub.”
Aeronca, contracted from Aeronautical Corporation of America, located in Middletown, Ohio, is a US manufacturer of engine components and airframe structures for commercial aviation and the defense industry. In the 1930s and 1940s, the company was a major producer of general aviation aircraft, and also produced the engines for some of their early designs.

Aeronca Inc. is a subsidiary of Magellan Aerospace USA, Inc.
