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.
Soon we will be expanding this page to include listings of aircraft and component manufacturers. If you are an aircraft manufacturing company and are interested in having your business appear on Airplanes.com then please contact us.
