Pratt & Whitney Aeronautical Vest-Pocket Handbook

Thu Jul 15, 2004 1:13 am

Does any one know where I can find a Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Aeronautical Vest-Pocket Handbook? It's a great reference handbook for engineers, and I believe Pratt has published them for decades. I remember back when I was in school, people that had internships at Pratt had gotten them, and I have even seen a few where I work, but I've never been able to get a copy of my own.

I've tried contacting Pratt with no luck, so if anyone knows how to get them, let me know.

Gosh, I'd love get my hand on one. I paid more than $60 for mines for that gosh darn small book, and it's a bit out dated.

Call the 800 number above and they'll ask for your email or FAX so they can send the form.
The book is $34.00.
Worth every penny and a few more.
