Cessna 150 Checklist

This customizable checklist can be used by Cessna 150 pilots to complete checks from pre-flight inspections to securing the aircraft after takeoff. Pilots can attach and annotate images of any defect found on the aircraft and instantly notify technicians for a quick response. Pilots can also accomplish this checklist while in the skies and have it automatically synced once they reach the ground. Disclaimer: This checklist is not a direct replacement for your respective country's aviation regulation-mandated OEM checklist. It is only meant as a secondary source of information. Always compare your aircraft-provided checklists and customize them.
