The flight manual presented here is rather uncommon. One might expect a bulky set of heavy binders. But this manual comprised 13 boxes of about 140 slides, totalling almost 1800 slides!
These slides apply to the Boeing B 737- 200 and may have been used by Air France for flight crew training. This set of instructions was made by Boeing in the late 1960s and are all in English.
The topics covered are:
General Description, Cockpit Familiarization, Aux. Power Unit, Electrical, Fuel, Power Plant, Fire and Overheat Protection, Air Conditioning and Pressurization, Ice and Rain Protection, Hydraulically Powered Systems, Cabin Systems, Emergency Equipment, Communication, Flight Instruments, Navigation, Autoflight System, Operational Performance.
Each topic is sorted in the boxes and labelled with a small hand-written paper tab. Additionally, each topic is identified by a title slide.
The first topic is General Description with inside views of the cockpit, the cabin, the luggage compartments, etc. as well as exterior views.
As in all manuals of this type, there are illustrations of all the pieces of equipment and their operating systems are clearly described with numerous and various diagrams.
Lastly, and oddly enough, some slides are designed as evaluation tools and offer multiple choice questions.
This training manual is complete. However, the slides may not be in order. They are numbered and with some patience it should be easy to sort them back in their original order. This is a remarkable and rare set that collectors of flight manuals as well as Boeing B 737-200 admirers will enjoy!
