The Tiger Moth can be best described as Iconic, it was developed from the very successful Gipsy Moth and designed by Geoffrey De Havilland in the 1930s to meet Air Ministry specifications for a new preliminary Trainer for the RAF. The most noticeable feature that distinguishes the Tiger Moth from similar DH bi-planes is the distinctive swept upper wing, which allowed better access for a pilot while wearing a parachute. The Tiger Moth went on to become a huge success all over the world and was used by several airforces, it wasn’t replaced by the RAF until 1952 when the DH Chipmunk entered service, the “Tiggy” is to this day a very popular choice with pilots all over the world and is known to be rewarding to fly.
