Center's Aviation Heritage

Center, Texas, was the location of the first aircraft manufacturer in the State of Texas.  States Aircraft Corporation was the first incorporated aircraft manufacturer by the State of Texas on September 8, 1933.  They constructed a small aircraft which was considered a good plane for its price.  States received a contract from the Chinese government to construct "pursuit" planes and also placed a bid to construct bomber aircraft for the French government during World War II.  Eventually, the company closed sometime following WWII.
