Default Handy docs in Kindle format

I've just started to learn A10 now after spending lots of time on BS. As a nice chrissy present I got a Kindle so thought its time to format some useful docs in ebook format.

8 files including following subjects: (kindle.rar)
  • Aerodromes
  • Checklists
  • 9 line brief
  • RWR threats
  • Ordnance
  • Brevity codes
  • glossary
  • HOTAS commands
Source Credit given where I could find the source of any info I took from elsewhere.

PDF's (usually look ok in landscape mode):
A10C cropped Manuals
If you want PDF's on the kindle I suggest using BRISS to crop them, fantastic open source tool!

edit: updated checklists to 1.1. Better formatting and added links to panel images at beginning of each section.
Attached Files
File Type: rar kindle.rar (3.65 MB, 598 views)
File Type: rar cookie - 25th VFS Checklists v1.1.rar (898.0 KB, 330 views)

Will fire `em up and check `em out next weekend.

Just what I was looking for...

as an aside... i love my kindle and simply view these docs as pdf on it but this will be much easier!

Check out www.ebookr.com for a source of kindle books. $15 a month with no commitment and unlimited free downloads... i got most of my flight biography library this way. I just downloaded Stuka Pilot and a few others this morning.

pdf's are just to clumsy on the kindle, hope you find these docs more user-friendly!

I had a look at ebookr after your comment, pretty disappointing, searched 5 books I have in my amazon wishlist, none showed up including Robin Olds classic. Maybe we can start a share thread for classic novels or reference books?
