The DeHavilland DH-82 was a very significant aircraft in the Allied war effort because of its vast use as a wartime trainer aircraft. The two-seater Tiger Moth was used in various Elementary Flight Training Schools including 28 schools in Britain, 25 schools in Canada, 12 schools in Australia, 4 in Rhodesia, 7 in South Africa, and 2 schools in India. DeHavilland constructed a total of 4,930 Tiger Moth Trainer/Trainee aircraft and our North Atlantic Aviation Museum was very fortunate to have acquired one.

We are pleased to announce that the museum re-opened on June 29th with some changes to the guest experience.
