For questions about checklists used for operating aircraft.

The checklist is developed to help aviators ensure they consider as much information as possible in the preflight phase so that they can make the best go/no-go decision possible and will be well-prepared once flying the flight where workload may constrain the ability to perform these tasks adequately. It is hoped that using this checklist, pilots can avoid the 5 P's: "Poor Planning leads to Poor Pilot Performance". Using a checklist can help as an antidote to the "impulsivity" hazardous attitude and can improve performance when time is of the essence.
