Fantastic great to have

  • By Michael from Altus OK USA on Sunday, April 15, 2018
  • Pros:
  • Review: Fantastic to have around when you forget a thing or two. Santa's little helper

A tool box encyclopedia

  • By James from Wichita KS USA on Tuesday, March 21, 2017
  • Pros: no micro text too small to read
  • Review: It isn't a parts catalog, it is a textbook that fits a drawer in your tool bench. It isn't a materials specification. Anyone who works on aircraft or aircraft parts will find lots of answers.

  • By Robert C. from Alvord TX USA on Thursday, April 04, 2013
  • Pros:
  • Review: Great reference book for all A&P, pilots, and aircraft owners. I gave my first copy away years ago to a new A&P and missed it ever since. Great buy. R. Johnson

Excellent replacement after 20 years

  • By Rupe from Lugoff, SC USA on Tuesday, May 01, 2012
  • Pros: Spiral binding
  • Review: My last copy of this volume was dog-eared and coming apart. But the MAIN reason I bought a new one was because of outdated info (Mine listed the USSR, East AND West Germany, etc. in the national registration list). The spiral binding of the newer volume makes it easier to thumb through and to fold open to the required page, Still an excellent reference, and now I have all the nations listed!

i would buy this product again
