Titles: De Havilland DH82 Tiger Moth No’s 1 to 3

The DH82 Tiger Moth was a typical 1930’s De Havilland biplane, developed from the earlier DH60G Gipsy Moth. The main change was moving the top wing forward to enable evacuation of the forward cockpit, and sweepback was introduced to maintain the centre of gravity. It quickly found favour with both civil and military pilot training organisations and over 9,000 were eventually built from assembly lines in England, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and several other countries.

It became the standard primary training aircraft in most commonwealth countries and was sold to over 20 other air arms. 200 examples supplied to Canada under the lend-lease scheme were designated PT-24 by the USAAF. It was also used in many other roles including agricultural topdressing in New Zealand.

We offer three titles containing flight manuals for the DH-82 Tiger Moth series, one title covers manuals produced in England and Australia, the second covers manuals produced in Canada and the USA, and the third covers manuals used by the RNZAF and RAAF. Each title is US$9.95. The files have been copied from the original flight manuals or reprints and retain any colour pages.
