Hispano Aviación was a Spanish aircraft factory which began production in 1939, after a section of the Hispano-Suiza factory was isolated into a "Nationalist" area during the Spanish Civil War.

Located in Tablada, in the Triana district of Seville, Spain, Hispano's factory produced several aircraft designs, including the Hispano HA-100 Triana; the Hispano HA-200 Saeta jet trainer and light attack aircraft designed by Professor Willy Messerschmitt.[1]

The Hispano factory was taken over by Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA (CASA) in 1972.
