Flight Manuals and W&B

There are the USAF "Dash One" and the US Navy "NATOPS" manual that contain tons of information about the T-34, but these are the officially recognized flight manuals by the FAA. Generated back before the days of word processors and lawsuits, short and sweet they are. Someone once passed on a T-34 NATOPS flight manual; it is here for your enjoyment.

Only change from Rev25 appears to be name change from "Raytheon Aircraft Company" to "Hawker Beechcraft Corporation".


2/1/00 The T-34C (TurboMentor) NATOPS flight manual in PDF form that someone passed along once upon a time. I'm sure it doesn't have the latest changes. This document is "searchable" That is, it is not just a "snapshot" of each page of the book. I'd like to have the A and B manuals up here in similar form some day. It's pretty big: 20 MB (megabytes).
