The CAC Files: Introduction

The CAC main office building in 1939. Picture from the Hargrave archive.

Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation was an Australian aircraft and engine producer which operated from 1936 until 1985.

CAC used a contract numbering system for each aircraft project it undertook, starting with CA-1 (the first contract for Wirraway aircraft) and ending with CA-32 (contract production of the Bell Kiowa helicopter).

This collection of web pages brings together information on each individual contract number, providing a historical reference for all the CAC projects. Click on the links in the drop-down menu above to navigate to the specific page for each CAC project. This site is a work-in-progress at the moment, so not all of the contract numbers have been completed.
