Scottish Aviation was initially formed in 1933 by the aviation pioneer, David McIntyre as a Flying School. He was partnered by the then, Duke of Hamilton (Douglas Douglas-Hamilton).

McIntyre was already the owner of Prestwick Airfield and they soon acquired, dismantled, transported and re-erected a building previously used as The Palace of Engineering at the 1938 Empire Exhibition in Glasgow.
Sited alongside what is now Prestwick Airport, just 30 miles from Glasgow, the new building was predominantly used as a home for the flying school.
