Title: Britten-Norman BN2A Mk III Trislander

The Trislander is a stretched development of the earlier twin-engined Islander, with a lengthened fuselage, strengthened undercarriage, and a third engine installed at the top of the fin. Well known for the number of passenger doors along the fuselage like a railway carriage, it had a short production run of around 10 years from 1970 to 1980 during which around 72 examples were produced. A number of unassembled kits were apparently supplied to a US company who obtained a manufacturing licence but the status of these is unknown.

This title contains two flight manuals for the Trislander, and two manufacturer’s publicity brochures for the Trislander. The files have been scanned from the original documents and retain any colour pages.
