Uploaded the Robin's Flight Manual

After several weeks of translation from French into English (and extensive use of the dictionary I might add) I have finally finished the English version of the Flight Manual for the Robin ATL I own.

Funnily the flight manual I got when she was purchased was simply a photocopy of something the previous owner used and there was no original manual to be had anywhere.

But using the power of the internet, I managed to find a .pdf version of the manual in French and went about making my own English language version. Each evening I had free I would fiddle about with the dictionary and MS Word and work on it.

I'm really pleased with the outcome and printed out the new English flight manual and had it bound. So now it'll stay with the aircraft or with me. I also worked on a checklist for the ATL. I based it on the layout I got from a wonderful FBO based in Florida. Everything for their C172's managed to print out on a single A4 sheet of paper. So using the checklist from the manual, I devised my own version for the Robin.

I've uploaded both the checklist and the manual for any other Anglophile ATL drivers out there to use at their discretion. Hope you enjoy using it as much as I do.

Hi, I just found your blog and absolutely loved it! The pictures of the tulip fields are amazing.

I tried to download the ATL check list and POH that you'd translated and I'm afraid I'm getting dead links. Is there any other way I can get a copy please?
