November 1932. (Flight 1932/11/17)

The Avro 626 is a single-engined British biplane trainer aircraft produced by Avro during the (1918-1939) inter-war period.

The Model 626 was developed by Avro from the company's Model 621 (Tutor) for export to smaller air forces, the idea being that the 626 would be a single aircraft that could carry out general aircrew training as well as a number of other roles. The types 621 and 626 were both two-seaters, but the latter had an additional cockpit behind the rear seat of the 621 and accessible from it.


  • Avro 626: Two seat multi-purpose aircraft.
  • Avro Prefect: RAF and RNZAF name for the 626; in the period most RAF aircraft received names.
  • Avro 637: Armed patrol version of the Avro 626.
  • Tatra T.126: Licence built 626, manufactured in Czechoslovakia.
