Cessna 152 Checklist

Created by: SafetyCulture Staff | Industry: Transport & Logistics | Downloads: 7

This customizable checklist can be used by Cessna 152 pilots to complete checks from pre-flight until securing of aircraft. 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 of 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.
