Pilots have many checklists. They are what keeps us safe, keep our planes in flying order, and in an emergency, they can save our lives.
There are pre-flight cockpit inspection checklists and pre-flight checklists for the exterior of the plane.
There are checklists for starting the engine and for run-up (testing certain systems before takeoff).
There are checklists for takeoff, approach and landing as well as after-landing and engine shut-down.
There are emergency checklists for engine failure in flight, fire in flight, electrical failure in flight and many more.
On a recent flight, my wife asked me why the co-pilot doesn’t have any checklists…so I had this made and posted it in front of the right-hand seat in my plane…
