Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. produced airships for the U.S. Navy during World War I and formed the Goodyear-Zeppelin Corp to build rigid airships during the 1920s and 1930s.

In 1939 Goodyear Aircraft was established to manufacture heavier-than-air craft.  Goodyear produced over 4,000 Vought F4U  Corsairs during World War II under the designation FG-1.

Goodyear Aircraft was renamed Goodyear Aerospace in 1959 to focus on radar technology.  It was acquired by Loral in 1987, then by Lockheed Martin in 1996.
