Flight Manuals

  • H-19 Helicopter Handbook, Single Rotor Engineering - 1964

    SKU: 19-PILOT-23

     Another Stead AFB handbook, this one with nine lessons on helicopter systems such as engine, transmission, rotors, flight controls, etc.  71pp, each lesson has fill-in-the-blank questions from the Dash-1, Pilot Handbook.  This particular student did not complete the fill-ins but did completely fill the inside and outside of the back cover with review notes to include a lovely little hand drawing of the cyclic, collective pitch and rudders.  About fair-good with exceptions as noted above.

  • H-19 Helicopter Advanced Flight and Instrument Handbook - 1965

    SKU: 19-PILOT-22

     Another green card cover manual, stapled and 3-hole punched, for training beyond that of the previous manual.  This one is 37pp with sections titled Low Level Navigation, Mountain Operations, Instrument Flight, Solo, Radio navigation, Search and Diversion, etc.  Again, a nostalic look into my past (especially buzzing houses of prostitution in Nevada and chasing wild horse herds!) Good with some student markings as expected.
