Title: Dassault Mercure

The Dassault Mercure was an intended competitor to the Boeing 737, backed by the French government. It was designed for 140 passengers, much more than the 737-200 then in production. The prototype first flew in 1973, but struggled to attract customers primarily because of the aircrafts short range of only 1700 km. In the end only 11 aircraft were built, operated by a single airline, Air Inter of France. They remained in service until 1995. The program remains one of the worst failures of a civil aircraft program in terms of number of aircraft sold.

This title contains the flight manual for the Mercure in Air Inter service plus a manufacturer’s detailed technical brochure in English. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
