Frigatebird you're not wrong about the old SAFGO checklists - I have one in my Bonanza - and APNG can go fck themselves, its staying in my Bonanza

I found my SAFGO gathering dust on a shelf in a flying school at YBCG - they didn't want it so I grabbed it - back in the early 90s you could still buy them new - I bought one for my C185 - I heard the manufacturer stopped making them due to a liability suit.

Every Talair aircraft had one (with aircraft specific check items - mine is personalised for my Bo) and, in my view, it was a major reason why we could leap from an Islander to C402, Twotter and Bandit - sometimes in the same day - safely.



There was a roller blind checklist in an ex RFDS C441 I used to fly - hated it/never used it.

I have used the roller blind check lists in a number of aircraft both single pilot (C404) and two pilot (Dash8) and they worked well. You had to be disiplined to never go past an item until it was actioned. Do that and we never had a problem. Like everything else you had to have a system and be trained to use it.

This was a couple of weeks ago, had to get to 8500 to get that view, that's dust not cloud. Groundspeed at that height was 60kts.
slow trip.

Took this going through about 8,000ft as well, on climb to FL270 or whatever it was that day. Certainly a strong inversion!

Hopped out, went back by transport and got another one

I agree Mr F Bird, I think the best times are gone, for GA type flying anyway.

yip, agree witht that. When I wazza kid you could hear a radial most days, DC 3's, Carabous, Ag machinery. I consider myself lucky to have flown radials a bit on the AG side, I think Drom's are the only radial working for a living these days and maybe still an odd thrush or Tractor?
