Title: Commonwealth Wirraway

The Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation of Australia was formed in 1936 as a result of a government scheme to make the country independent of foreign aircraft suppliers. Following a visit to the USA a licence was concluded to manufacture the North American NA-16 (AT-6), to be known as the Wirraway in Australian service. The initial example first flew in 1939 and a further 754 examples were eventually produced.

This title includes the flight manual (titled Operating Instructions) and maintenance manual (titled Overhaul and Repair manual) for the Wirraway,  along with the Aircraft Profile for the Wirraway. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
