AP 3456 RAF Flying Manual

This Unique Aviation Manual is Now Available to YOU!

The RAF Manual, Flying is endorsed by the Central Flying School and is used extensively within the Royal Air Force and many other flying Services throughout the world as a basis for the teaching of aviation subjects. As such, it has been the prime reference Manual for military student aircrew examinations and for refresher training, instrument rating and instructor categorization.
It has long been recognized as a complete source of information for Civil Flying schools, but has not been readily available to all.
