Summary

De Havilland Australia was established in South Melbourne in March 1927 and was the first overseas subsidiary of the de Havilland Aircraft Company. Three years later the company moved to Sydney where it ran an assembly, repair and spare parts facility for de Havilland aircrafts. De Havilland Australia did not begin manufacturing planes until World War II. The first to be produced locally was the DH-82 Tiger Moth.
