T28 Trojan Crosswind limitations info

Friend of mine has a bought T28 Trojan. Where can he obtain official Pilots Notes for the type and what is the max crosswind limitation?

Here's a scanned copy (although it appears to be a supplement to cover the carriage of stores, but includes all the regular stuff) that would seem to suggest 27 knts - Page A2-3.

A copy of the T-28 AFM and other manuals is through https://www.esscoaircraft.com/

Jest tell them if its an A model [R-1300] or B/C/D [R-1820]

I owned a T-28D for nearly 20 years and it is a magnificent flying machine. The big engine ones will outclimb a Mustang to 10,000ft

From the NATOPS manual. Tell your mate I want a ride Centaurus to make a re acquaintance with the bird. Didn't have much, if any, experience with crosswinds during my time. Mind you Bob Hoover did the test work, hopefully one doesn't need his level of skill.

different graph to the one in my link, but confirms the 27 kts figure

212man, Yours is a USAF manual, mine from the original operators of the B & C models, the USN. The USAF operated the low powered A model, but became operators of the B, C and D by drawing on USN stocks during the Vietnam fraca and using them for COIN work in the conflict.

I can say from personal experience a 20G25 90 deg crosswind was not a big deal. The wide track of the landing gear and a pretty powerful rudder makes the aircraft pretty good when dealing with a cross wind landing. IMO a bigger issue is the crosswind takeoff. A strong cross wind from the left needs aggressive use of the rudder and even some brake as you are counteracting both the weather vanning tendency and engine torque.
