The Great Lakes Aircraft Corp was founded in late 1928 in Cleveland, Ohio using the former Martin facility.  The company produced about 50 of the Martin T4M-1 (designated the TG-1) and attempted a civil transport based on the design.

The company's most successful design was the 2-T-1 sport biplane of which about 250 were built.

The company's last aircraft of consequence was the BG-1 scout-bomber for the US Navy.

A second Great Lakes Aircraft was formed in 1973 located in Wichita, Kansas that produced updated 2-T-1s.
