There are essentially two types of manufacturers in the aviation industry, aircraft manufacturers and aircraft component manufacturers. Certain aircraft manufacturers will cover a variety of types of aircraft whilst others will specialize, for example, in military jets, airliners, gliders, helicopters and so on. Component manufacturers likewise may cover various parts or deal with a specific product. Examples of these are aircraft engine component manufacturers, manufacturers of aircraft interiors and electronic component manufacturers. Component manufacturers are the suppliers to aircraft manufacturers.
We are going to be expanding this page further to include listings of aircraft and component manufacturers. If you are a member of manufacturing company and are interested in being placed on Airplanes.com as a business resource, please contact us in this regard.
