At the same time, the new aircraft was to be a very promising aircraft, suitable for transportation on their occupants and for the transport of small loads. Despite the fact that the aircraft De Havilland DH 80 Puss Moth was primarily focused on the commercial scope of its application, the aircraft was also actively employed and private owners, it is mainly predisposed very high flight characteristics of the aircraft, as well as its low cost .
Despite the fact that the design of De Havilland DH 80 Puss Moth multipurpose aircraft was carried out almost at the dawn of the era of the aircraft industry, the aircraft proved to be very effective in terms of its operational capabilities, which expresses the possibility of its multipurpose use, as well as high-speed flight.
De Havilland DH 80 Puss Moth Enough ineffective component of the aerodynamic design of the aircraft was compensated by using a more powerful propulsion system that actually. It does not result in difficulty in the management of this aircraft and did not cause any complaints from the explants.
