Avro 536 Aircraft Information

Avro 536

536 and 546

Manufacturer: Avro
First flight: May 1919
Retired: 1930
Number built: 26

The Avro 536 and its follow-on design, the 546 were developments of the 504 military biplane, marketed for civil use in the years following World War I. Principally intended for joyriding, the aircraft had greater wing area and a more powerful engine to lift four passengers, seated in two rows of side-by-side seats behind the pilot.

In service at Blackpool, Avro 536s flown by three pilots were able to fly around 500 passengers on their first day of operation. At least one 536 was still providing joyrides on Jersey as late as 1927.

A single variant was produced as the Avro 546, featuring a fully-enclosed cabin for the passengers.
