Title: Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer

Conceived as a larger development of the earlier Pioneer single engined STOL aircraft, the Twin Pioneer was in fact an all-new aircraft and first flew in 1955. Easily recognisable by its triple fins the aircraft was one of the few post-WW2 aircraft to feature a high wing and fixed under-carriage.

By the time production ended 94 examples of three series had been produced. The Series 1 used 550 hp Alvis Leonides 514/8 engines, the Series 2 used 600 hp Pratt & Whitney R-1340 engines, and the Series 3 used 650hp Alvis Leonides 531/8 engines. The RAF was the largest user with 39 examples, of both Series 1 (CC.Mk.1) and Series 3 (CC.Mk.2).

This title includes both the civil manufacturer’s Crew’s Notes, and the RAF flight manual (titled Pilot’s Notes) for the Twin Pioneer plus a manufacturer’s brochure, has been scanned from the original manuals and retains any colour pages.
