Learning to Fly









WEATHER / Flight Planning
















Here are some checklists that I've been working on. They are in PDF format.  I began these while I was in training and have been refining them over time. They are meant to be printed on 8 1/2 X 11 paper folded in half, but you will have to cut off the lower white part. That will allow you to put the ATIS sheets (found on the download page) or blank paper just behind them so you'll have room for scratch paper. That really helps with my organization. Some have V-speeds at the beginning and other goodies which tend to be forgotten, these should really be helpful for you. Understand that they are a work in progress and are only offered here as a training aid.  You should always check your POH/PIM to check your exact procedures, numbers, etc. (kinda goes without saying, huh?)

Here's an example behind of what they look like....


The best way to create these is to print them out on regular paper, then take them to Kinko's or another on demand printer and ask them to put them in a spiral binding for you. One good suggestion is to make the back cover a little bit higher so that you will be able to put it in your clipboard / kneeboard and still be able to flip the pages.

Here are the planes I have available:

Piper Cherokee 140 Cessna 172R
Cessna 172M Cessna 182Q
Cessna 172N ATIS Sheets
