Grumman TBM-3 Avenger Pilot's Handbook of Flight Operating Instructions (1944)
The Grumman TBF (designated TBM for aircraft manufactured by GM) Avenger was so highly valued by the US Navy that its demand for the aircraft soon outstripped Grumman's production capacity, so General
Motors was contracted to build the TBM from September 1942 onwards. This WWII era pilot's handbook was issued to pilots transitioning to their new TBM Avenger aircraft.
While reading it, see if you can imagine how the new pilot must have felt as he readied himself for the heaviest single-engine aircraft of World War II.
