Our logo features the Moth Minor, the first operational aircraft to fly out of the base. The de Havilland DH.94 Moth Minor was a 1930s British two-seat tourer/trainer aircraft built by de Havilland at Hatfield Aerodrome, England and by de Havilland Australia at Bankstown Aerodrome, Australia.

De Havilland DH94 Moth Minor Aircraft

Because of pressures on wartime production for de Havilland in Great Britain, drawings, jigs, tooling and complete and partially-built Moth Minor airframes were transferred to de Havilland Australia in early 1940. As a result, 42 Moth Minors were constructed in Australia, all of which ended up serving with the RAAF due to high demand for training aircraft.
