The Dragon Rapide was designed in late 1933 as a faster and more comfortable successor to the DH84 Dragon and perhaps went on to be the most succesful short haul commercial passenger aircraft of the 1930's.

At the onset of World War II many Rapides were impressed by the British Armed Forces and served under the name of the De Havilland Dominie being used for passenger and communictaions duties, The RAF and Royal Navy also used them for navigation and radio training purposes.

During the Post War period the Rapide proved to be an economic and durable aircraft despite its primative plywood construction and many examples are still flying today
