Title: MITSUBISHI MU-2
The Mitsubishi MU-2 was Japan’s first post-WW2 aircraft design, and first flew in 1963. It was also Japan’s most successful aircraft with around 704 built in Japan or an assembly line in San Antonio, Texas between 1963 and 1986. Designed as a light twin turboprop suitable for many civil and military roles, the aircraft had a very high performance largely attributable to its advanced wing design, using over-wing spoilers for roll control and full-span double-slotted flaps.
This high performance coupled with a very reasonable purchase price lead to a high number of crashes caused by inexperienced pilots unfamiliar with its performance and handling characteristics. The manufacturer conducted special training programs to address this and the FAA issued a Special FAR to require training equivalent to a type rating for pilots. Together these lowered accident rates to less than other similar turboprop aircraft.
This title contains the flight manual and two manufacturer’s brochures for various models of the Mitsubishi MU-2. The files have been scanned from the original documents and retain any colour pages unless otherwise stated.
