Well I have'nt found a pilots manual yet but have found some nice manuals that go very well with the aircraft. So I started this form, maybe some one will find the pilot manual. Below are what the manuals are about.

1. Glider retrivial system
2. Glider Deceleration system
3. Glider Tow Ropes

Cool stuff! I work on the USAFA Sailplane program which has its roots back to WW2 - I'm going to share this stuff with some of those guys...

During WW2 CG-4A had a wing depart at the factory during a exhibition flight killing the company president and the Mayor of St. Louis!
