Default Flight manuals and NATOPs

Hi, guys! I am not 100% sure, I have the F-14 and F-18 NATOPs on my kindle, what flight manuals and NATOPs is legal and illegal? I thought I’d better ask because I wanted to make sure I did not have any flight manuals and NATOPs that is illegal. Thanks!

Cheers,
Vincent

You're asking a question that can only be responsibly answered by a highly-specialised lawyer . If you wish to serttle for an irresponsible (and considerably cheaper) answer , as long as you don't have anything marked "classified" , and so long as you do not make any effort to transfer documents to another party , and particularly to one outside the US , you should be ok .

Hi, guys! Here is the list of flight manuals I have.

F-5E/F flight manual which says published under authority of the secretary of the Air Force on the lower part of the F-5E/F flight manual.

Apollo AS503/CSM 103 final flight plan November 22,1968.

SEDR 109 project mercury NASA capsule flight operations manual capsule 13 (Atlas).

Supplement unclassified NASA project Gemini familiarization manual rendezvous and docking configurations.

NATOPs flight manual F/A-18A/B/C/D 161353 and up aircraft.

What manual should I delete if any? Thanks!

Cheers,
Vincent

The Natops manuals are publicly accessible. I downloaded all of mine on the net without any questions or restrictions.

Well not wanting to take chances, I have deleted the ones on my phones.

AFAIK, non of them are legal, unless you are Government employee or contractor that requires those manuals.
For more information you can see
Air Force Instruction 61-204
DOD instruction 3200.14, 5230.24, 5230.25, and 5200.39
I am sure there are more regulation I am unaware of.

publicly availible doesn't mean they are legal. Only the authority which published certain document can make it publicly availible.

There’s a saying in the concealed-carry community...”Concealed means concealed.” This means if you have something that may or may not be legal, don’t advertise it.

LEOs and the gov’t do not have crystal balls and unless you tell someone—ANYONE—that you have something or are doing something, there is no chance of a SWAT team or DHS/KGB team coming to you.

“3 can keep a secret if two are dead.”
