Title: Laister-Kauffman TG-4A

The Laister-Kauffman TG-4A was a standard recreational soaring glider pressed into service for military training. However it was found to be too agile and gained height more quickly than the gliders that would be flown in combat and it was superseded by the TG-5 and TG-6.

To maximise value this title includes the flight manual for the TG-4A and flight manuals for two other military gliders. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.


This title contains:

  • USAAF Pilot’s Flight Operating Instructions for the TG-4A glider T.O. 09-15AA-1 dated 21-3-43, with approx 13 pages.
  • USAAF Pilot’s Flight Operating Instructions for the TG-5 glider, T.O. 09-25AA-1 dated 15-12-42, with approx 9 pages.
  • USAF Flight Manual for the TG-7A motor-glider, dated 30-6-86, with approx 51 pages.
