Title: Aviation Traders Accountant

The Aviation Traders Accountant was a twin turboprop airliner intended as a replacement for the DC-3. It first flew in 1957 but by that time the market was already dominated by the F27 Friendship and Handley-Page Herald. Although it was displayed at the 1957 Farnborough Air Show it did not attract much commercial interest and the program was ended in 1958. The sole example built was scrapped in 1960.

With only a single example produced it is unlikely a definitive flight manual was ever produced.  This title contains two manufacturer’s brochures or specifications for the Accountant along with a manufacturer’s reprint from The Aeroplane magasine. The files have been scanned from the original documents and retain any colour pages.

  • Manufacturer’s Detailed brochure titled “Preliminary Information on the Aviation Traders Accountant”, dated February 1954 with approx. 33 pages. Contains specifications and detailed drawings. Individually numbered with statement at front that circulation is limited and the information is for the recipient only and not for publication.

  • Manufacturer’s reprint of technical description article from “The Aeroplane” magasine dated July 12, 1957 with approx. 5 pages.
