Similar to the Aldershot, the 561 Andover was produced to fly the RAF's Cairo-Baghdad air service. Four were built but only three were delivered, with accommodation for 12 passengers, or stretchers as an air ambulance.


One commercial version was built as the Avro 563.


Both versions powered by one 485kW Rolls-Royce Condor III engine.
