Title: Fairchild F-24 and UC-61

The Fairchild UC-61 series are military liaison models of the civil Model 24. The Model 24 first appeared in 1933 fitted with a 145hp Warner Scarab engine. A number of different engines were subsequently fitted including the Ranger in-line engine in 1939. In 1941 production changed to the two military versions, the Warner engined UC-61A and the Ranger engined UC-61K. Production resumed after the war but as was typical with civil aircraft of that era trying to compete with surplus military aircraft, production did not last long.

We offer two titles for this interesting little cabin monoplane. The first title contains the flight manuals for both the Ranger in-line and Warner radial engined versions of the UC-61 series, plus the USAAF Erection & Maintenance manual covering all versions. The second title covers the civil F-24, including two instruction manuals for the civil F-24 model, one pre-war and one post-war, plus two brochures for the F-24 series, again one pre-war and the other post-war. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
