Title: Short SC7 Skyvan No’s 1 and 2

The Short Skyvan first flew in 1963 and was partly based on high aspect ratio wing research conducted by the Miles company. Initially powered by piston engines, it was quickly converted to Aztazou turboprops, and latter Garrett turboprop engines. It found a niche with skydiving operators, short-haul freight and the military, and 153 had been built when production ended in 1986. It formed the basis for the later SD330 and SD360 aircraft.

We offer two titles for the Short Skyvan. The first title contains the manufacturer’s flight manual (titled Pilot’s Notes) and two manufacturer’s brochures for the Turbomeca Astazou powered series 2 along with the Maintenance Manual for the later series 3 Short Skyvan. The second title contains the pilot’s notes and specification for the later series 3 Garrett powered Skyvan along with two manufacturer’s brochures. The files have been scanned from the original flight manuals and retain any colour pages.  Each title is US$9.95.
