Chrislea Aircraft Limited was a Britishmarker aircraft manufacturer, formed in 1936 and closed in 1952.

History

The company was formed on 2 October, 1936 at Heston Aerodromemarker near Londonmarker, Englandmarker, to build the designs of Richard Christoforides. The company name was derived from the partners Christoforides and R.V.Leak. The first product was the Airguard which first flew in 1938. The Ace first flew in 1946 and soon after in April 1947 the company moved to Exeter International Airportmarker (due to the closure of Heston). At Exeter the Super Ace and Skyjeep were produced. The aircraft did not sell well do to resistance to the unusual control wheel used. The Managing Director and Chief Designer R.C. Christoforides left the company after internal problems with reduced demand and lower production levels. In 1952 the assets of the company were bought by C.E.Harper Aircraft Limited who scrapped all partly constructed and non-flown aircraft (Seven Super Aces and two Skyjeeps).
