1945 Naval Aviation / Flight thru Instruments


The US Navy needed an effective way to teach pilots, aeronautical navigation concepts and techniques, so their approach was to create useful data visualizations, and the results was this beautifully illustrated manual.

This pilot training manual for the US Navy (and Marine Corps) in WWII. Flight through Instruments, issued by the aviation training division, office of the Chief of Naval operations. An absolute must see to better understand aeronautical navigation concepts and techniques, the way our WWII pilots did.

I know very few books that look half this good nowadays.
Since I started flying I have yet to see another vintage manual with such clear, concise, and easy to understand graphics. A picture is worth a thousand words, and this book is worth a million.

Enjoy reading all of our rare aviation manuals and documents online.
