Title: Britten-Norman BN2 Islander

The Islander was designed by John Britten and Desmond Norman in the early 1960’s as an inexpensive twin-engined commuter aircraft which maximised passenger numbers and simplicity at the expense of speed and range. The aircraft has been one of the most successful European civil aircraft and has been in continuous if low-rate production for over 50 years. Over 1280 have been built in several versions including a turbine-engined variant popular with military customers.

This title contains two flight manuals for the Islander, one civil and one military, and to give value, also includes the flight manual for the Islander’s bigger brother, the Trislander. The files have been scanned from the original documents and retain any colour pages.
