Summary

H. E. Broadsmith and N. Love established, in 1919, Australia's first aircraft manufacturing industry, with a company called Australian Aircraft and Engineering Company (AAEC) and produced six AVRO 504 K training biplanes for the R.A.A.F. and seven for civilian customers. Broadsmith undertook a programme to determine the suitability of Australian timbers for manufacture to British Aeronautical specifications and found Mountain Ash to be the best material.
