Bombardier Aerospace is a division of the Bombardier group. The aerospace division was launched with the acquisition of Canadair, at the time owned by the Government of Canada, after acquiring Canadair in 1986 and restoring it to profitability, Bombardier acquired the money-losing Boeing subsidiary, de Havilland Aircraft of Canada based in Toronto, Ontario. A few years later in 1989, Bombardier, by then experts at buying companies cheaply and turning them around, acquired the near-bankrupt Short Brothers aircraft manufacturing company in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Shortly thereafter, in 1990 Bombardier acquired the bankrupt Learjet Company of Wichita, Kansas, builder of the world-famous Learjet business aircraft.
Bombardier builds business jets, short-range airliners and fire-fighting amphibious aircraft and also provides defence-related services. Their aircraft were originally delivered with the same names as the original companies, but Bombardier has re-branded all of their current offerings under the Bombardier name. The primary product line includes the Learjet and Challenger family of business jets developed from Lear designs.
