DeHavilland Tiger Moth

DeHavilland DH 82A Tiger Moth Biplane

This Tiger Moth belongs to the Colonial Flying Corps Museum, Inc. N4808 has a distinguished history. It was built in 1941 by the DeHavilland Aeroplane Works in Hatfield, England, and shipped to Canada where it was used to train British Royal Air Force and Royal Canadian Air Force pilots. The Colonial Flying Corps Museum obtained the airplane in the early 1970s and began a complete restoration, which was completed in 1978. This airplane has been seen at many air shows around the country, including of course, the annual Museum benefit air show at New Garden Airport (this year on June 13).

The Tiger Moth is a two-seat, open-cockpit trainer. It is built with a steel-tube fuselage and wooden wings, all covered with fabric. The engine is a 4-cylinder, air-cooled, inverted in-line Gyspy Major Mark II which produces 125 hp.

Normal crusing speed is 90 mph; maximum diving speed is 160 mph; landing speed is 35 mph.
