Successor to the world famous Tiger Moth biplane, the Chipmunk was the first original design by deHaviland Canada and was built in quantity in Canada and in Great Britain for the RAF. Primarily used as a basic trainer to provide air cadets with elementary flying instructions prior to going onto jet aircraft training. The parent Canadian company produced a total of 217 DHC-1ís for the RCAF. One thousand fourteen were built by deHaviland in the UK including both military and civilian versions. As a civilian aircraft, the Chipmunk is often seen an aerobatics competition.
