The DeHavilland Chipmunk DHC-1 is a two-seat, single-engined trainer aircraft manufactured by De Havilland Canada. The company intended to develop a successor training aircraft to replace the Tiger Moth in the related market. The Chipmunk was the first post-war project De Havilland pursued after the Second World War, with great focus on creating a contemporary aircraft, dedicated for pilot training. Wsiewolod Jakimiuk designed a cantilever monoplane with an enclosed cockpit and significant aerodynamic features to aid the Chipmunk’s performance and control. These included strakes fitted along the leading edges of the wing, while the aircraft was powered by a De Havilland Gipsy Major 1C, later replaced with a De Havilland Gipsy Major 8. The DHC-1 Chipmunk was first flown in 1946, then introduced at the end of the same year.
