Cessna 172S Checklist Suite

ODT

PDF
This is a collection of preflight, normal, abnormal, and emergency checklists for the Cessna 172S adapted from the POH printed in 2000.

Some procedures have been modified as compared to the POH to align with the flows in the airplane. Briefing elements have also been added.

Designed for an US Letter page in portrait mode. The output is intended to be printed in color, duplex format and then trimmed and laminated.

Assembly Note: 5 mil laminations over 100lb bond (roughly the thickness of the material used for manilla folders) will produce an ideal and cost-effective finished product.
