Tiger Moth Flights

Welcome to the fascinating world of the deHavilland Tiger Moth!

Tiger Moth flightsHistory

At the age of 27, Geoffrey de Havilland left a good Engineer position to build this classic bird. The design followed the classic layout of the Wright brothers: biplane wings, twin pusher propellers, a forward elevator, and a rear rudder. Flight testing took place on Salisbury Plain.

When the war came, de Havilland joined the Aircraft Manufacturing Co., just north of London, as a designer. Here he toiled for the duration of hostilities and his designs flew strongly (when the engines allowed) and were built in enormous numbers. Almost five thousand DH4's were built under licence in the United States.

By war's end, de Havilland had made his name with the public and was able to raise 20,000 to start his own company. By 1939, thousands of Tiger Moth aircraft of varying designs had been manufactured and exported to every part of the globe. Find out more at the deHavilland Moth Club.
