So I didn’t like my first iteration much. You had to cut the paper to size and had to handle 3 sheets of paper which was a pain. Here is a second iteration of the checklist. It can be printed on a single double-sided letter sheet in landscape mode. This way you can just fold it in half and keep flipping it as you proceed through your flight. I divided it into 4 major chuncks so that the sheet “flipping” marks the transition from one chunk to another. These are
- interior/exterior checks
- take-off and cruising
- landing and taxi to ramp
It has also other refinements such as noting down the ATIS info in a up-to-down manner as oppose to right-to-left. Please feel free to download the pdf and make adjustments – such as swapping in the KBED airport diagram with your home airport’s. Always refer to the your plane’s POH as the ultimate source for checklists!
