Title: Grumman G-73 Mallard

The Grumman G-73 Mallard was the third amphibian passenger aircraft built by Grumman, following on the success of the Goose and Widgeon. The larger Mallard was designed for commercial operation and retained many of the features of its smaller predecessors. The Mallard prototype first flew in April 1946, and entered commercial service in September of that year. While it was intended for regional airline operations, with two pilots and 10 passengers, post-war surplus aircraft sales and the availability of smaller airports limited market potential.

This title contains the flight manual and service manual for the Mallard plus two other descriptive documents, has been scanned from the original flight manuals and retains any colour pages.
