The Société des Ateliers d’Aviation Louis Bréguet also known as Bréguet Aviation was a French aircraft manufacturer.
The company was set up in 1911 by the aviation pioneer Louis Charles Breguet. Bréguet Aviation was extremely active during the First World War, producing numerous military aircraft, such as the pioneering metal Bréguet 14 day-bomber, for the Allies. During the interwar period, the firm’s aircraft set several records for non-stop crossings of the Atlantic Ocean, as well as with the unconventional Bréguet-Dorand Gyroplane Laboratoire. It was active during the Second World War, surviving the conflict and largely focusing on commercial transport aircraft during the postwar years. Its most notable military programmes during the Cold War include the Bréguet 1150 Atlantic and the SEPECAT Jaguar. During 1971, Bréguet Aviation merged with Dassault to form Avions Marcel Dassault-Bréguet Aviation, which was subsequently rebranded as Dassault Aviation.
