Getting to know a new or different airplane isn’t the same as borrowing your best friend’s Toyota Camry for the weekend. In fact, it’s a lot more complicated than that.
While you’d never probably read the owner’s manual for an automobile, airplanes are different. If your future includes a flight in a Cessna 170 Series, then get your hands on a reproduction Aircraft Owner/Information Manual (AIM), also called a Pilot Operator’s Handbook (POH), from Pilot Mall.
Pilot Mall reproduction manuals are for training and reference purposes only. They do not qualify as FAA-certified replacements for your lost or damaged manual.
