It was then used until 1931, largely for policing the empire in the near and far east. The nature of the terrain was such that the aircraft was loaded with a variety of supplies including a spare wheel which was tied to the side or underdside of the fuselage. The DH9A was a rugged and dependable aircraft

Some aircraft were aquired by the Soviet Union who copied it as the Polikarpov R-1, it was the Soviets first mass produced aircraft.

Additionally the DH9A was also supplied to the Chinese and Afghan Air forces amongst others
