What is a Cessna 172 checklist?

A cessna 172 checklist or a cessna 152 checklist are used to standardize flight safety measures during and after flying Cessna aircraft. It is used aircraft fleets to identify problems or potential flight risks at an early stage and to remedy them immediately. The checklist for the Cessna also serves as an orientation aid for flight students and flight instructors to ensure that pre-flight checks are carried out regularly.

Why are pre flight checklist s are important?

Before students leave the runway in a Cessna, they are trained to correctly evaluate flight conditions with the help of a detailed checklist. Preflight checklists are used throughout the flight to ensure that the pilot and crew are prepared for any potential problems. If, due to carelessness, only a single item on the pre-flight, takeoff and landing checklist is omitted, it can have life-threatening consequences.

The importance of preflight checklists

Investigations by international air traffic control authorities have shown that the main cause of life-threatening accidents is that the flight crew did not carry out the flight control check before take-off and did not follow checklists. Regular pre-flight checks are the best way to prevent aircraft crashes and other air accidents. The following is a list of items that are essential to the Cessna checklist:

    Cockpit preparation

    Before the start

  • Roll check
  • Engine test

  • After take off

  • checking: Landing lights, flaps, engine power, altimeter
  • final approach check

  • After landing

  • Parking check
