Avro 621 Tutor

[BACK]

Designed by Roy Chadwick, the Tutor was created as a replacement for the veteran 504K/N that were still in extensive use at the end of the 1920's.  Due to its excellent handling characteristics, the Tutor became a regular at air pageants and RAF displays throughout the 1930's.  The introduction of the Spitfire and Hurricane sounded the death knell for bi-plane trainers such as the Tutor with most being replaced by 1939.
