Designed by the great Roy Chadwick as a fighter trainer there were indeed four and for only of these aircraft built for the Irish Air Corps. The first flight was in 1935 with the Irish taking delivery with their Armstrong Siddeley Jaguar IVC powered version in August of that year. The Irish planes were originally to be designated as Avro 667 but were known throughout it's long service as the 636.
