No matter what, we as pilots use our checklists on an ongoing basis.. You may be electronic such as using the Garmin GTN750 checklist. You may be binder rich in using the original POH. Or, you may be someone who loves a quick hit checklist with the POH to back you up. I have created a very simple word doc template for a simple checklist. You can use this to make the high level checklist and the critical emergency checklist, laminate it and put it in your plane for quick access.

This checklist wont’ work for everyone and it is most certainly not complete. Please use your POH to setup and validate each step, remove what is not needed and modify according to your specific airplane numbers.
