Metal Aircraft Corporation was a American aircraft manufacturer of transport aircraft.

The Metal Aircraft Corporation was formed as a restructuring of the T.E. Halpin Development Co. in 1928. [1] Halpin was an former employee of William Bushnell Stout's firm at a time when all-metal construction was at it's infancy. The Metal Aircraft Corporation continued production of the Halpin Flamingo transport at it's factory at the Lunken airport with several variations [2]. The company was sold to Robert Schryver, of Columbus, Ohio in September 1929. [3]

Flamingo's formed the basis for new startup airlines of the time, including Embry-Riddle, US Airways, and Mason & Dixon Air Lines.[4]
