Scottish Aviation was initially formed in 1933 by the aviation pioneer, David McIntyre as a Flying School. He was partnered by the then, Duke of Hamilton (Douglas Douglas-Hamilton).
In 1935, they founded the Scottish College of Aviation Limited although just 1 year later, they changed the name to Scottish Aviation Limited.
McIntyre was already the owner of Prestwick Airfield and they soon acquired, dismantled, transported and re-erected a building previously used as The Palace of Engineering at the 1938 Empire Exhibition in Glasgow.
