RV Operating Instructions and Checklists

Van's Air Force Western Canada Wing, its members, and the authors of these procedures and check lists assume no responsibility for their accuracy, utility, or for any consequences that arise as a result of their use.

Most of the material on this page is available in three file formats: HTML, MS Word, and PDF. I've included MS Word only because that is the original source in most cases. However, you must have MS Word to open those versions, an obvious drawback if you don't! To open the PDF files you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download for free here. Any browser can open the HTML versions.
