The first de Havilland Moth, so named by Sir Geoffrey de Havilland because of his passion for entomology, made its maiden flight from the company aerodrome at Stag Lane, Edgware, on 22 February 1925.
The Moth evolved from de Havilland\’s dream of producing a simply maintained, easy-to-fly and cheap aeroplane that would introduce a wider circle of people to the world of aviation. Simplicity was the key to its considerable success, and the DH 60 quickly achieved popular acclaim: 90 were ordered by Sir Sefton Brancker, Director of Civil Aviation, for government-sponsored flying clubs.
