Titles: Consolidated PBY-5 Catalina No’s 1 and 2

The Consolidated Model 28, designed as a long-range patrol aircraft and designated PBY by the US Navy, first flew in 1935. It was one of the most widely used flying boats of WW2. Manufactured under licence in Canada and Russia, the type also saw extensive service with the British, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand air arms. It saw extensive use after the war in many roles including as a water bomber, and many examples remain airworthy today.

We offer two titles on this distinctive and well-known aircraft covering flight manuals for most variants of the PBY from several air arms. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
