M. B. Arpin & Co.

M. B. Arpin & Co. of West Drayton was a British aircraft manufacturer prior to World War II. The firm constructed an unusual aircraft, the A-1 as a new observation type for the British Army, but failed to attract orders.

The A-1 first flew at London Air Park, Hanworth on 7 May 1938, it had been built at Longford, West Drayton. On 26 May 1939 the company was renamed Arpin Aircraft Manufacturing Company Limited[1] but with the start of the Second World War it did not produce any aircraft.
