Title: Miles M.9 Master

The Master was an advanced trainer built by Miles Aircraft. The first variant, the Master I used the Rolls Royce Kestrel engine, and 900 were built. A small  number were produced in single-seat configuration with wing mounted armament but did not see active service. The Master II was developed to use the Bristol Mercury engine when production of the Kestrel ended, and just over 1700 were built. The Master III used the American Twin Wasp junior engine and 600 were completed before production shifted to the Martinet.

3,250 Masters were manufactured in total, the greatest number of any Miles type. It required a significant expansion of the Miles facilities at Woodley Airfield, and also used a moving track assembly line, a first for the British aircraft industry. No complete example of a Master has survived.

We offer two titles for the Miles Master. Each title is US$9.95. These contain the flight manuals for all variants of the Master, and also the flight manual for the Miles Martinet, a development of the Master for glider towing. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.
