Title: Miles M.2 Hawk and M.14 Magister

The Miles M.2 Hawk was a Blackburn Cirrus powered low-wing monoplane first flown in 1933. 47 examples were produced before a shortage of Cirrus engines led to an improved version known as the M.2F Hawk Major using the DH Gipsy III engine.

The Hawk Major became the basis of the M.14 Magister, the first monoplane designed specifically as a trainer for the RAF. As a low-wing monoplane it was an ideal introduction to the new Hurricane and Spitfire aircraft then entering RAF service. Production started in 1937 and over 1300 had been manufactured when production ended in 1941, including 100 built under licence in Turkey.

This title contains civil and military flight and maintenance manuals for both the Miles Hawk and Miles Magister. The files have been scanned from the original manuals and retain any colour pages.
