The Avro 560 was an ultralight built of wood and fabric construction, it was a cantilever high-wing monoplane. It was powered by a 698 cc (42.6 in³ Blackburne Tomtit engine. The aircraft was flown by Bert Hinkler during the trials held in October 1923; the 560 did well and recorded an average of 63.3 mi (101.9 km) on each Imp gal (4.5 L). The aircraft was evaluated by the Air Ministry after the trials but was not chosen for further production and only one 560 was built.
