This book belonged to my father, John E. Voisin. He trained as a navigator at San Marcos, Texas.

Could you add .pdf of cover also? I downloaded the complete NIF file and there's no cover. File starts with table of contents.

Very useful information. Many procedures all still valid for the profesional pilots. I hope they will read it.
