Westland

Westland Aircraft was located in Yeovil, Somerset. Formed as a separate company by separation from Petters Limited just before the start of the Second World War, Westland had been building aircraft since 1915. During the war the company produced a number of generally unsuccessful designs.

After the war the company focused on helicopters, and was merged with several other British firms to create Westland Helicopters in 1961.
