On March l6th a new page was written in the history of Colonial aviation. On that date the Governor of Tanganyika christened the first aeroplane owned by any British crown colony, protectorate or mandated territory and used for survey purposes only. Safety, dependability, ease in flying—all these factors had to be considered in the selection of the machine.
The aeroplane chosen was an Avro Avian. The safest, most dependable, easiest to handle light aeroplane. Used increasingly by flying clubs throughout the world.
