| Create Your Own Checklist Using our Template
your comments in email and the large number of downloads of
our Warrior, Archer, and C150M checklists, we're happy to see
that many of you like the checklists that we've created for
public consumption. Indeed, if imitation is the sincerest form
of flattery, then flattered we certainly are given how many
of you have gone and created checklists for your own aircraft
based on the compact, kneeboard-sized "normal procedures
on front, emergencies on back" format that we developed.
received many emails from you over the years wanting the "source"
for our checklists. For a number of reasons, we have largely
been unable to do this.. until now. Now, if you want to use
our Visio files as the basis for some aircraft checklist that
you'd like to make, we're happy to accomodate.
a few terms and conditions will apply. Please read these carefully.
In order to maximize the benefit to all pilots, you agree
to email us back the visio source file (and a .PDF,
if you can make one from it) of any checklist you make
using our template. We will then (most likely) post your
checklist (not the visio source file, but a .PDF thereof)
to our popular handling notes / checklists page for all to

intact. Hey, let us benefit a bit for our hard work by letting
others hear of us and our website. You may supplement this
with your own copyright notices, logos, etc--but the key here

may not, under any circumstances, sell or otherwise directly
profit from the checklists you make with this template. Renting
out an airplane with the checklist inside is ok. Selling the
checklists on ebay is not, even if you claim that the checklist
is free and you're just charging shipping and handling.
may not release either our template OR YOUR VISIO FILE BASED
ON OUR TEMPLATE to others.
make use of our file, you need to have Microsoft Visio. No technical
support will be provided for either Visio or our checklist Visio
Making a checklist using our template is harder than doing it
with another tool, such as MS-Word, but the results with our
template can be much better. If
you just want to do a quick-and-dirty checklist, MS-Word or
a similar program will do. Our Visio-based checklists are more
"dense" and take a lot of time to create. Even if
you start with our template, expect to spend a minimum of 2-3
hours getting even relatively minor changes to your liking.
is Visio? Microsoft
Visio is a drawing program that comes with many but not
all versions of Microsoft Office. To see if you have Visio
installed, find where Word and/or Excel are located in
your start menu. If you have Visio, there will usually
be an icon for it somewhere around there. Sorry, these
files are not editable in Excel or Word. It is, of course,
possible to make checklists in Excel or Word, but Visio

remember to email a copy of whatever checklist you create with
that we may put it up on the site for all pilots to benefit
from. If you're concerned about liability or modesty, just ask
and we will post your submission anonymously.
