They're not the same.  "Pilot's Notes" are small booklets, on general handling; many are available from Crecy Publications.  Original manuals can be expensive, but the RAF Museum have done a reprint of the Mark V manual, and I saw it, recently, still available in their shop.

No downloads from me, but some links.

Zenos also have Spitfire IX, XI, XIV pilots notes
I was recently given a genuine,  Pilot's Notes for SPITFIRE Mark F.VII - Merlin 64 or 71 Engine; Mark F.VIII - Merlin 63, 66 or 70 Engine (A.P. 1565 G & H, December 1943) . Incidentally, these pilot's notes were to be read in conjunction with A.P 2095 PILOT'S NOTES GENERAL, which applied to all RAF and lend-lease American aircraft. PART IV EMERGENCIES, for example, deals with everything from
Engine failure, one engine landings, through to parachute descent and sea rescue. Interesting reading...

How is that an emergency in a Spitfire Grin?
