Miles Aircraft

From Academic Kids

Miles Aircraft was a British manufacturer of light civil and military aircraft. The company was founded by Charles Powis and Jack Phillips as Philips and Powis Aircraft.

Famous creations include the Hawk Trainer and its military variant, the Magister, as well as the Messenger and the Gemini. During the Second World War they produced the Master advanced trainer and Martinet target-tug.

Having produced a revolutionary load carrier, the Aerovan, and almost produced the first jet aircraft to break the sound barrier - the Miles M.52 Supersonic Research aircraft whose design greatly influenced the Bell X-1, the company went into receivership in 1947, with its aircraft interests being mainly bought by Handley Page Aircraft. Eventually the Aerovan concept was further developed by Short Brothers into the Skyvan, and finally the SD360 "Flying Shed."
