Northrop YF-23A Flight Manual

This manual contains the necessary information for the safe and efficient operation of the YF-23A flight test prototype aircraft. These instructions provide a general Knowledge of the aircraft and specific normal and emergency operating procedures. Your experience is recognized; therefore, basic flight principles and detailed description and operation of systems common to all other aircraft are avoided. This manual provides the best possible operating instructions under most circumstances but is not a substitute for sound judgment. Multiple emergencies, adverse weather, terrain, etc., may require modification of the procedures. This publication is intended for use by an experienced and qualified pilot assigned to the YF-23A Flight Test Program. Flight and operating limitations included herein can be supplemented and/or superseded by Supplemental Flight and Operating Limitations, published under separate cover by Northrop System Safety (Orgn. 3891/89.) The Manual is divided into seven fairly independent sections to simplify reading straight through or using as a reference manual.
