SECTION I Scope. This manual contains all the information necessary for the safe and efficient operation of the L 39CT.

The first three sections must be read thoroughly and fully under- stoood before attempting to fly the aircraft. The remaining sec- tions provide important information for safe and efficient mis- sion accomplishment. Checklists. The flight manual contains amplified normal and emer- gency procedures. Checklists contain these procedures in abbre- viated form and are issued as separate technical orders. Line items in the flight manual and checklists are identical with r
