Summary:
The Aviation Technical Manuals Collection contains over 40,000 original aviation technical manuals for aircraft, engines, aircraft components, and ground equipment.
Scope and Contents:
This collection contains over 40,000 original aviation technical manuals for aircraft, engines, aircraft components, and ground equipment. The bulk of the material consists of military technical manuals (United States Air Force and Navy) with some civil aviation manuals as well. The bulk of the manuals relate to American-built equipment, although some foreign types are included. Whenever feasible, revisions are maintained separate from the basic manual.
Biographical / Historical:
Manufacturers and operators of aircraft and equipment produce large numbers of manuals for their air and ground crews. These manuals generally cover all phases of operation, from assembling the newly-purchased aircraft, operation and maintenance of the equipment, to storage of the equipment. Manuals are updated (revised) as new procedures are developed or modifications are made to existing models. New subtypes generally receive new manuals, although subtypes with the same procedures are generally grouped into the same manual, with new models being added in revisions.
