The origin of the name Slaley cannot be understood without reference to the Hunting Family. Charles Hunting was a ship and landowner and started the first Hunting Company in 1874.

During WW1 Gerald Lindsay was badly wounded at Ypres and was discharged out of the army but joined the Royal Flying Corps where he served till after the end of the war. This was the start of a long family association with aircraft operating and manufacture.
