Title: Westland / Aerospatiale Gazelle

Initially designed by Aerospatiale (originally Sud Aviation) as a replacement for the Alouette helicopter, the Gazelle single turbine five seat light helicopter was the first helicopter to feature the fenestron shrouded tail rotor. It first flew in 1967 but had already attracted British interest which resulted in a work share agreement with licence manufacture undertaken by Westland at Yeovil.

The aircraft was a commercial success and licence manufacture was also undertaken in Yugoslavia and Egypt. When production ended in 1996, around 1,775 had been built.

This title contains the RAF Aircrew Manual and the manufacturer’s flight manual for the Gazelle plus a nice manufacturer’s brochure. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
