About Aeroplane Heaven DHC-1 Chipmunk

The DHC-1 was developed to replace the legendary but ageing DHTiger Moth as a principal military air force two-seat trainer. Theprototype first flew on 22nd. May 1946 and the design remained largelyunchanged right through to its withdrawal from general service as lateas 1996.

A "bubble" canopy version, DHC-1B-2-S3 (Chipmunk T.2), wasdeveloped for use by the Royal Canadian Air Force as fighters such asthe P51D Mustang and North American Sabre jets of the period wereemploying such canopies.

The most common variant, the one depicted in our simulation was theBritish-built T.10. This version is the one most commonly recalled byATC pilots of the day and is still in service with many private ownersand aero-clubs around the world.

A total of 1284 Chipmunks were built over the life of the type.
