Titles: Percival P50 Prince & P66 Pembroke No’s 1 to 4

The Percival Prince was a twin-engined high-winged light transport aircraft first flown in 1948. It was developed from the earlier smaller Merganser aircraft which was unable to be produced due to a lack of available suitable engines. Several different series of civil versions were produced in small numbers. Three variants were used as land-based transports and trainers by the British Royal Navy. A total of 75 examples of all variants were built.

An improved model with a longer wing span and greater weight was known as the President for the civil market, and the Pembroke in the military market. The RAF used theirs for thirty years, and they were supplied to several other air arms. A total of 128 were built.

We offer four titles which include flight manuals, brochures and a maintenance manual for the Prince/Pembroke/President series.  The first title covers Percival Prince civil variants, and the second title covers the military variants of the Prince. The third title covers Pembroke military flight manuals, and the fourth covers the President civil model. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages. Each title is US$9.95.
