The Sopwith Aviation Company was a British aircraft company that manufactured aeroplanes for the British Military in the first world war, most famously the Sopwith Camel.
The company folded in 1920 as a consequence of the drop in orders after the end of the war as well as rising tax rates.
The company's chief test pilot was Harry Hawker who in 1920 with Sopwith, Fred Sigrist and Bill Eyre, formed H.G. Hawker Engineering, forerunner of the Hawker-Siddeley Aviation company which produced many famous fighter aircraft, including the Hurricane, Hunter and Harrier.
