The DHC1 Chipmunk was developed to supercede de Havilland's classic Tiger Moth elementary trainer. A tandem two seat, stressed skin monoplane it was the first indigenous design produced by de Havilland (Canada) Ltd. The first prototype flew from Downsview, Toronto in 1946. The RAF received 735 of the 1014 Chipmunks built in the UK, with others adopted by the Royal Navy and the Army Air Corps. They were also exported to a further 18 countries world-wide. The aircraft continued to provide valued service for over forty years until 1993 when all RAF and RN elementary flying training was contracted to civilian companies. Many Chipmunks were purchased by private owners and still fly today.
