Transposase Transgenic Flies

I have a general question to the community:

To become transgenic flies normally helper vectors coding for transposase
are used.

1)	Does D. melanogaster WT encode for transposase?
2)	Do theses P-elements occur in D. melanogaster Wt?
3)	From which organism does the transposase encoded by Helper Plasmids
come from?
4)	Is there literature (reviews) about this topic? 

Thank you in advance
