AUSTER Light Aircraft Series


Titles: Auster Light Aircraft Series No’s 1 to 3

The Auster Aircraft company produced light aircraft between 1938 and 1961. Although often thought of as the ubiquitous British aircraft manufacturer, in fact it started out licence producing aircraft designs from the American Taylorcraft company and most of its designs derived from those original products. Most Austers were high-wing single engined cabin monoplanes with differing engines, cabin capacity and refinements.

We offer three titles covering flight manuals (titled Pilot’s Notes) and a Maintenance Manual for various models of the Auster, including civil and military variants. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
