Across Canada in a de Havilland Tiger Moth

The British Commonwealth Air Training Program is largely forgotten history in Canada despite the fact it still stands today as one of the largest air training programs ever undertaken . It was a large contribution by Canada to the war effort.

The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s British biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. The airplane was outfitted with a canopy in Canada and this version was flown heavily as a trainer within the BCATP.
