There are several check lists and memory aids that are very useful for the pilot in the cockpit. The FAA calls this cockpit resource management. That is having everything that you need for your flight and having it in the proper place where you know were it is and where you can reach it if you need it. For instance, where will you store your start-up check list after the helicopter is running and you have finished the items on the list. Having an easy to reach pocket is very handy, but it must be tight enough so that wind blowing through the open doorways cannot blow them out of the helicopter. The following lists are very handy and helpful. The student laminated the check lists and color coded the ones used in the cockpit. These were made by Carl Shirley and it is evident of his jet fighter pilot days when CRM could mean life and death. The list on the left is the one that I give every student prior to our first flight and is used every time before we board the helicopter. The others are self explanatory.
