The Columbia Aircraft Company was formed (1929?) by Charles Levine, Giuseppe Bellanca and Clarence Chamberlain to acquire the rights to a Wright Aircraft designed by Bellanca--the W.B.2.

During World War II, Columbia Aircraft produced Grumman J2Fs for the U.S. Navy.  The company was acquired by Commonwealth  Aircraft of Kansas City in 1946.

There was also a Columbia Aircraft from 2005-2007.
