1928 Gipsy Moth 60GM
In February 1925, a prototype of the De Havilland Moth flew in Britain and was recognized as an outstanding trainer. Quickly put into full production, the aircraft was manufactured with a variety of different engines, the most popular of which being the A.D.C. Cirrus and D.H. Gipsy engines.
Depending on the engine installation chosen, the aircraft was then known as a Gipsy Moth, Cirrus Moth, Genet Moth, etc.
The RCAF initially acquired the Moth as an ab initio trainer to replace its Avro 504s. The aircraft proved to be very popular and versatile. It could be flown either on wheels or with floats.
