    Doesn’t matter if it has useful information, the CAA Approved Flight Manual is a required piece of equipment per the TCDS.

    I bought mine from stoddards a number of years ago. Good for a mostly stock 12. Most 12’s are heavily modified any more so mileage may vary depending on the aircraft. Guess I’ll have to pull it out of the seat back and read it again.

    I've got one and it looks like a Univair reprint of the original Piper book. It's 15 pages and covers:

    Description
    Specification
    Operating Procedures
    Operating Limitations
    Service Hints

    as JRB rightly says, I'd say the bulk of this stuff really applies to a pretty stock 12, which mine is
