Boeing T-43A Flight Manual

An aircraft flight manual (AFM) is a book containing the information required to safely operate the aircraft. The information within an AFM is also referred to a Technical Airworthiness Data (TAWD). A typical flight manual will contain the following: operating limitations, Normal/Abnormal/Emergency operating procedures, performance data and loading information.

Example AFM content:

A typical AFM is a pilot's operating handbook (POH), which became the standard format for an AFM after 1978. An aircraft flight manual is serial number specific, whereas a pilot's operating handbook is merely model specific.
