Based on the civilian D.H.60 Moth, the D.H.82 Tiger Moth first flew in 1931 and was immediately put in to service as a trainer for the Royal Air Force.

The Tiger Moth made its greatest contribution as a trainer during World War II.  The type equipped 28 Elementary Flying Training Schools in the UK, 25 in Canada, 12 in Australia, 4 in Rhodesia, 7 in South Africa and 2 in India.

The Tiger Moth was replaced for RAF training purposes by the de Havilland Chipmonk between 1950 and 1953.  More than 8,000 were built.
