Title: Grumman G-44 Widgeon

The Grumman G-44 Widgeon is a small, six-person, twin-engine amphibious aircraft, originally designed for the civil market. It is a smaller version of Grumman’s earlier G-21 Goose, and was produced from 1940 to 1949. The aircraft was used during World War II as a small patrol and utility machine by the US Navy, US Coast Guard and the Royal Navy.

After the war, Grumman redesigned the aircraft as the G-44A to make it more suitable for civilian operations. A new hull improved its water handling, and six seats were added. A total of 345 were built by Grumman. Another 41 were produced under licence in France as the SCAN-30. Most of these ended up in the US.

We offer two titles for the Widgeon. The first title contains two military flight manuals for the Widegeon, and the second title contains the civil flight manual and maintenance manual. They have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
