That is exactly what I was looking for.
I just needed a plane that I could refer to in a sentence like "This plane was nothing like the Cessna 172 he used to fly in the 70s", although as I'm putting the flight training in the 30s, it will rather be "This plane was nothing like the Tiger Moth he used to fly in the 30s".
I was not asking specifically about France, actually m character will have traveled a lot, and a few years in England will fit perfectly in his background.
So, Tiger Moth flying in the UK in the 30s. Thanks a lot.
And oh yes, Chambery is a very nice place. Esp. if you're in aviation. The small 'country airport' become an overcrowded International Airport during the winter.
