Some Representative Photographs of the first British Post‐war Aeroplane to go into full‐scale production on the strength of civil orders alone. The eight to ten‐seater Dove was specifically designed to reduce operating costs to a minimum, and for this reason its first cost is not very low. However, in a few years' operation the discrepancy is more than covered by the saving which accrues from its operating efficiency. The number of orders already placed has made possible extensive tooling and jigging so that a high production rate will be achieved next year—the full output for the next two years is already booked
