A subsidiary of Britten-Norman

After the success of SR.N1, Cushioncraft was one of the British companies that took licences from Hovercraft Development Ltd.

Cushioncraft developed a hovercraft; their first craft, the CC1, was the second hovercraft to lift off the surface of the world.

In the early 1970's, Britten-Norman sold the Cushioncraft company to the British Hovercraft Corporation.
