About the origial
In 1911 the Deperdussin company was established as one of the leading manufacturers of monoplanes, and several different models were available.
This one was the most inexpensive, a single seater intended for schooling and private flying.
This particular machine has been preserved in the Shuttleworth collection, and is still in flyable condition!
