Sir John Carden was associated with British light aviation after designing the 750 cc ultralight engine for the Gloucestershire Gannet in the early 1920s. Went into partnership with L. E. Baynes in 1930 to produce a one-off single-seat powered glider. In 1936 built a single Bee, a small two- seat high-wing monoplane with two Carden Ford S.P.1 modified car engines, flown in 1937. Development of three- seat B-3 halted by war.
