Title: Cessna AT-17 Crane

Originally designed as a civil aircraft the Cessna T-50 twin first flew in 1939. A Canadian requirement for a twin-engined training aircraft saw an order for 550 Cessna “Crane”. The USAAF took an initial order of 50 as AT-8’s. Further orders resulted for light personnel transports and liaison aircraft under the AT-17 designation, and including the JRC-1 for the US Navy. When production ended in 1943 over 5,400 aircraft had been produced.

This title contains the flight manuals for the AT-8 and AT-17, and the maintenance manual for the AT-17 and civil T-50. The files have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages.
