FAIRCHILD PT-19 PT-21 PT-23 (M62)


Title: Fairchild PT-19 PT-21 PT-23 (M62)

Known by the Fairchild model number of M-62, the PT-19 series was widely used as a primary trainer during WW2 and over 8,000 were produced. There were three principal variants; the PT-19 series using the Ranger L-440 engine; the PT-23 series using the Continental R670 engine; and the PT-26 series especially produced for Canada with an enclosed canopy and other modifications. The PT-26 used the Ranger engine and was known as the “Cornell” in Canada.

We offer two titles containing the flight manuals for most variants of the Fairchild M62, military models PT-19, PT-21, and PT-23. Each title is US$9.95. The first title includes the USAAF pilot and maintenance manuals, plus the operating and service manuals for the Ranger L-440 engine. The second title includes the civil manual for the M62, which covers operation and maintenance, plus a nice brochure. The files have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages.
