De Havilland Aircraft Co.

UK registered Civil/Military aircraft De Havilland Aircraft Co.

The De Havilland Aircraft Company are one of the post WW I most prolific light aircraft builder with the Humming bird and the Moth series of designs that had brought general aviation to the people, Early flying clubs and groups ordered them in 100’s, The Tiger Moth was used in the 1000’s by the RAF as a basic trainer from the 1930’s with most being sold onto the civil market after the RAF disbanded a lot of the training units after WW II . I have put a list together of DH types still surviving into the 21st century .
