The Cornwall Aviation Company’s first aircraft was this red and white Avro 504K, purchased in May 1924.
During 1928 this Avro 504K towed a newspaper banner over the South Wales valley.
Avro 504K G-AAAF was bought in September 1928 and remained with the company until August 1933. After numerous subsequent owners the aircraft was burnt at Gatwick in 1939.
Avro 504K G-ABHI flew with Cornwall Aviation from April 1932 until January 1934, when it was withdrawn from use.
