While it might not appear in checklists, an essential part of preflight planning is to read the owner’s manual carefully. A little studying in advance goes a long way toward being as prepared as possible.
We carry high-quality reproduction manuals for the Swift T-35, also called the Buckaroo, and a variant, the YT 35. These planes aren’t exactly modern, so if you learned to fly on late-model equipment, it’s a good idea to keep an owner's manual handy for training and reference purposes.
These manuals feature the same information in the original aircraft Pilot Operator’s Handbook. They are not, however, FAA-certified replacements for your lost or damaged original.
