The “Tiger Moth“ was a British WWII primary trainer used by most RAF, RCAF, and Australian pilots. Designed in 1931 as a development of the well known “Gypsy Moth,” the “Tiger Moth“ became one of the world’s most famous training aircraft. It has been estimated that 70,000 RAF pilots learned to fly in the “Tiger Moth.” It had a cruise speed of 80 mph and a top speed of 105 mph, range of 300 miles, and a service ceiling of 14,000 feet. The “Tiger Moth” on display was built in 1940.
This aircraft is flyable and is on loan from Dr. Andres Katz of Dallas, Texas.
