Title: Curtiss SC-1 Seahawk

The Curtiss SC-1 was the next generation of floatplanes for the US Navy and first flew in 1944. However protracted development meant it entered service too late to see any significant service in WW2. 577 were built, but most were delivered on conventional landing gear as floatplanes were being replaced by helicopters.

To maximise value, this title contains the flight manual for the Curtiss SC-1, plus the flight manuals for two other US Navy scout aircraft, the Curtiss SO3C-2C and the Vought OS2U-3.  The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
