Miles Magister Military Trainer Aircraft

The Miles M.14 Magister was a basic trainer designed to meet Air Ministry Specification 40/36P by Miles Aircraft for the Royal Air Force, and to a lesser degree the Fleet Air Arm. The Miles M.14 Magister first flew in March 1937 and production started seven months later, it was the first monoplane specifically designed as an RAF trainer. Production of the Miles M.14 Magister had reached 1,203 when, in 1941, the last aircraft rolled off the production line. It is of interest to note that Magister is a Latin word meaning "soldier teacher" but the aircraft was better known as the "Maggie" by it's many pilots.
