Naval Aircraft Instrument Handbook, NAVAER 05-1-568, 1944
Here is an original WWII-era Naval Aircraft Instrument Familiarization and Inspection Handbook, NAVAER 05-1-568, published in 1944 by the US Navy Bureau of Aeronautics.
The 8.5 by 11 inch manual is divided into 3 sections:
- Section 1 Flight Instruments 94 pages
- Section 2 Power Plant Instruments 71 pages
- Section 3 Navigation Instruments 75 pages
Each section contains several pages on each instrument, describing its use, function, operation, and inspection, including illustrations, diagrams and cut-aways
The manual is clearly experienced but is in reasonable condition given its age. The front cover is discolored and the tabs for each of the 3 sections are worn. But overall, the content is intact and a handy reference.
