and of course the 'biggie' Mitsubishi makers of the AM6/Zero and still making aircraft today. amongst other things
and of course Kawasaki makers of the H8/Emily seaplane  and still making aircraft today. amongst other things
if anything Suburu are the odd one out not still making aircraft. instead it lineage is from Fuji

Just might struggle a wee bit getting a Subaru Forester airborne.......
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
