SCOTTISH AVIATION PIONEER

$9.95

Title: Scottish Aviation Pioneer

Built to an RAF specification, the Pioneer first flew in 1947. The original version used the De Havilland Gypsy Queen engine but performance was disappointing and the aircraft was not ordered by the RAF. The company re-engined the aircraft with the Alvis Leonides engine, as the Pioneer II.

The Pioneer II demonstrated excellent STOL performance and was ordered by the RAF as the Pioneer CC.1. A total of 59 examples were built, most used by the RAF except for six used by the Ceylon Air Force and nine for the Malaysian Air Force.

The title contains the RAF flight manuals (titled Pilot’s Notes) for the Pioneer plus several manufacturers brochures, has been scanned from the original manuals and retains any colour pages.
