British Aerospace (BAe) was formed in 1977 as a nationalized corporation by the merger of British Aircraft Corp (BAC), Hawker Siddeley Aviation, Hawker Siddeley Dynamics and Scottish Aviation.  BAe's heritage dates back to aviation pioneer A.V. Roe.

In 1993, British Aerospace sold its Corporate Jets division to Raytheon.

In 1999, British Aerospace merged with Marconi Electronic Systems to form BAE Systems.

BAe is a partner of Airbus Industrie.
