Peyret-Mauboussin was a French aircraft manufacturer of the late 1920s and early 1930s.

Formation and cessation of activities[edit]

The firm was formed by Louis Peyret and Pierre Mauboussin in 1928 with the aim of designing and constructing a series of light sporting civil aircraft. Three types of single-engined aircraft were produced before Mauboussin left the firm in 1932 in order to form his own company.
