The De Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk is a two-seat, single-engined trainer aircraft crafted by De Havilland Canada. The company’s objective was to develop a successor training aircraft to replace the Tiger Moth in the relevant market. The Chipmunk marked De Havilland’s first post-war project after World War II, emphasizing the creation of a contemporary aircraft dedicated to pilot training. Designed by Wsiewolod Jakimiuk, the Chipmunk featured a cantilever monoplane with an enclosed cockpit and notable aerodynamic enhancements to enhance performance and controllability. These included strakes along the leading edges of the wing, while the aircraft was initially powered by a De Havilland Gipsy Major 1C, later upgraded to a De Havilland Gipsy Major 8. The DHC-1 Chipmunk took its maiden flight in 1946 and was introduced at the year’s end.
