The Learstar was one of the first ventures by the famous Bill Lear (of later Learjet fame) into aircraft manufacturing and was a conversion of the Lockheed 18 Lodestar (C-60). He recognised the sound engineering of the original Lockheed design but realised with advances in aerodynamics and engineering a much more efficient executive transport could be produced. The aircraft was completely re-manufactured and incorporated numerous modifications to increase speed and efficiency and improve the interior accommodation.
This title includes the pilot’s manual and a nice manufacturer’s publicity brochure for the Learstar. The brochure details the complete re-manufacturing process and the modifications made. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
