Title: Beechcraft 73 Jet Mentor

The Beechcraft Model 73 Jet Mentor was developed as a private venture from the T-34 Mentor in the hopes of interest from the US military. The prototype first flew in 1955. It was evaluated by the USAF who preferred the Cessna T-37, and by US Navy who ordered the Temco TT-1 instead. Only the single example was built.

To maximise value, this title contains the flight manual for the Jet Mentor, and the flight manuals for two other 1950’s trainer aircraft produced for the US military but which never progressed further than the initial development stage, the Temco TT-1 and the Fairchild XNQ. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
