Why can't I purchase certain handbooks online?
planned on making Blackhawk, Apache and other
military Aviator's WingNotes™
commercially available online. However, events of
9/11 changed everything. We had security concerns
that certain information should be restricted from
getting into the wrong hands. The Blackhawk
Aviator's WingNotes™ QRH,
for example, is complete. However, we've adopted
the position only to sell, or license, the finished work
to the U. S. Government under contract.
technical proposal was submitted (per reference 1) and
the response indicated per reference 2. Our
proposal has earned U. S. Army Aviation & Missiles
Command (AMCOM) technical merit and interest,
however if an aviator wants our publications, his (or
her) unit commander must exercise the request through
unit procurement channels and funding source.

Operator’s Manual (-10)
WingNotes™ presently uses the most current edition of
the Operator’s Manual (-10) as the primary source for
performance data and procedures. For example, in the
case of the:
UH-1H/V Operator’s Manual TM 1-1520-210-10, and
UH-60A/EH-60A and UH-60L Blackhawk Operator’s Manual
TM 1-1520-237-10, etc.
Cartesian charts from chapters 5 (Operating
Limits and Restrictions) and 7 (Performance Data)
are digitized into a WingNotes™ proprietary
electronic Performance Engineer’s Manual (ePEM).
Our ePEM contains arrays of densely populated aircraft
performance data tables. These data are analyzed,
modeled and manipulated into the distinctive
WingNotes™ format specifically tailored for
operational combat aviator use.
“It is crucial to know
and fully understand the limits of your aircraft. Commanders must
understand how power performance affects their aircraft and how it will
affect the mission. Sending an aircraft out on a mission knowing it will
not be able to hover out-of-ground effect until it burns off fuel
because the demand for hover power exceeds the capabilities of the
aircraft, and pilot, requires careful consideration and management of
the risks.” BG James E. Simmons, FlightFax Oct
