Chipmunk Warbird Trial Flights - 30 minute flight - Camden
The de Havilland Chipmunk is one of the RAAF's longest-serving aircraft types, entering service in 1950, and only being completely retired in 1993.
Chipmunks replaced the Tiger Moth as an initial pilot trainer, offering relatively modern features such as flaps, brakes, radio and an enclosed cockpit. Over seven-hundred Chipmunks were built for the RAF, some of which also served with the Army and the Royal Navy.
The Duke of Edinburgh learned to fly in Chipmunks and made his first solo flight in 1952. In later years the Prince of Wales and the Duke of York also received their initial pilot training in Chipmunks.
