THE TIGER MOTH EXPERIENCE
TRAINER OF 'THE FEW'
When you think of a bi-plane, the chances are it's the Tiger Moth that springs to mind. Thousands of these simple two seat training aircraft were built during the 1930's for use by the Royal Air Force as initial training aircraft. Designed by Sir Geoffrey de Havilland, and built by the legendary de Havilland Aircraft aircraft company, the type quickly became a commercial success. With orders from over 25 different nations, construction occupied most of the companies production capacity for several years.
The Tiger Moth is perhaps best known as the aircraft that trained 'The Few'. Those legendary men of RAF Fighter Command who held the numerically superior Luftwaffe at bay during the hardest days of the Battle of Britain. The RAF found the Tiger Moth's handling ideal for training future fighter pilots. Generally docile and forgiving in the normal flight phases encountered during initial training, when used for aerobatic and formation training the Tiger Moth required definite skill and concentration to perform well.
