Established 1922 at Omaha, Nebraska, to produce aeroplanes designed by Professor G. Bellanca, first being the Bellanca C.F. high-wing monoplane of about 1924, powered by an Anzani engine. Prof. Bellanca left the partnership in 1923 and joined the Wright Aeronautical Corporation the following year. Wright built several Bellanca monoplanes, the last of which established a world endurance record, remaining in the air for more than 51 hours (see also Bellanca).
