Titles: Beechcraft T-34 Mentor No’s 1 and 2

The T-34 was originally built by Beech as a private venture, evolved from the model 35 Bonanza with a new fuselage and conventional tail. The original Model 45 Mentor first flew in 1948 and since then over 1,000 have been built in three main variants.

The USAF used the T-34A as its primary trainer, taking 450 examples in the mid 1950’s, some built in Canada by CCF. The US Navy acquired 423 T-34B’s for use as primary trainers, also in the mid 1950’s. In 1973 the US Navy evaluated the T-34 converted to turbine power using the 715 hp PT6A-25 engine, and following a satisfactory evaluation, ordered 183 new production examples. Production of the T-34C eventually totaled 353.

We offer two titles including flight manuals covering all major variants of the T-34, plus a manufacturers maintenance manual for the early variants. Each title is US$9.95. The flight manuals have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages unless otherwise stated.
