Southend-on-Sea Flying Services

Operated from c.1947 to c.1956

Founder/Director – Unknown

Next to nothing is known about this company and the only clue to its existence is a C.A.A. aircraft record alluding to the ownership of a single aircraft. The business itself was based on Marine Parade in Leigh-on-Sea although there are few clues as to what form its aeronautical operations took, if indeed flights even got off of the ground at all. However, the delivery of its single aircraft is believed to have taken place on October 17th 1947.
