The Purpose of Pre-Takeoff Checklist Items

November 2, 2017
The pre-takeoff checklist is a systematic procedure for making a check of the engine, controls, systems, instruments, and avionics prior to flight


  • The idea is to find any problems before taking off
  • Procedures will vary greatly between aircraft. In general, follow the manufacturer’s instruction laid out in the POH to know what to check, the reasons to check each item, how to detect a malfunction, and to ensure the aircraft is in a safe operating condition as recommended by the manufacturer

Reasons for Checking each Item

Detecting Malfunctions

  • Malfunctions will also be detected per the manufacturer’s limitations and instruction set forth in the POH
Ensure the Airplane is in Safe Operating Condition
