    I have been told that there is no such thing as pilots notes in the LW like there was in allied forces is this true and if there are it was put together post war to fill a need can anyone verify this

    I would tend agree with you statement that there really was no such thing as pilot notes for the German side. At least I have never seen any. Which defiantly does not mean anything.

    I thought I had a modern day cheat sheet for a Bf-109 but currently cant find it. If I do I will post it. Hopefully some one will have more on the subject because it is interesting and I have to wonder why not?

    Pilot notes? Definietely there has been, but I only have for the Bf 109 - its called Bedienungsvorschrift ("operating/servicing instructions").
    Its actually the same content as pilots notes - how to take off, what to do before a dive, how to make an emergency landing etc.

    Usually though, what you find on the net is the Flugzeughandbuch ("aircraft hand book"), which are the description of the aircraft and it subsystem - electric net, hydraulics, navigational equipment, that sort of thing - for the ground crew.

    Very interesting Kurfurst, take a look at this. Is this one of the pilots notes. I think it came from cockpit insturments website. One of these days I need to learn a second language.

    Any one know of a program that can translate pdf files? :lol:

    Thanks but no thanks I'll believe my sources no offence.
    The way it was described to me it was all given in class where it was and I quote "beaten into them" the pilot did not have a Pilots operating handbook
