The Caudron Airplane Company ("Société des avions Caudron") was a French aircraft company founded in 1909 by brothers Gaston Caudron (1882-1915) and René Caudron (1884-1959). It was one of the earliest aircraft manufacturers in France and produced planes for the military in both World War I and World War II. The company was acquired by Renault in 1933.
