CHECKLIST PROGRAM


YOUR RESPONSIBILITY

AFR 60-9 requires the pilot to use this checklist when operating this aircraft.

TECHNICAL ORDER NUMBER

This checklist is identified by a T.O. number identical to that of the applicable Flight Manual except for addition of 'CL' (checklist) and a suffix number indicating the crew member to whom it applies.

HOW TO BE ASSURED OF HAVING LATEST DATA

Refer to T.O. 0-1-1-5A, which is issued weekly, listing all current Flight Manuals, Supplements, and Checklists. Its frequency of issue and brevity assure accurate, up-to-date publications listing.

CONTENT

This checklist consists of four parts: Normal Procedures, Emergency Procedures, Performance Data, and Servicing Data. The numbered (line) items correspond to identically numbered items in the amplified procedures in Sections II and III of the Flight Manual. Emergency procedures are identified by a black striped border. A Take-off and Landing Data Card is included at the end of the normal procedures checklist.

FLIGHT MANUAL

This checklist does not replace the amplified version of the procedures in the Flight Manual. To fly the aircraft safely and efficiently, you must read and thoroughly understand why each step is performed and why it occurs in a certain sequence.

CONCURRENCY

As changes are made to the amplified checklists in the Flight Manual, concurrent changes will be made to this checklist so that both will agree. However, a change to the Flight Manual may not affect the amplified procedures. Therefore, the Flight Manual date may not be the same as the checklist date. To determine the checklist applicable to a given Flight Manual issue, refer to the bottom of the Flight Manual 'A' page under 'Current Flight Crew Checklists' For purposes of determining the concurrency between the Flight Manual and this checklist, the latest data of a supplement affecting this checklist will be considered to represent the latest change date of the Flight Manual.

SUPPLEMENTS

Whenever you receive a supplement affecting your checklist, write in the appropriate information. Printed replacement checklist pages will be available to you as quickly as possible. A notation on the bottom inside corner of these pages will indicate that they reflect certain supplements. Note that there is no action in the checklist program that constitutes authority for discarding a supplement. Such action is authorized only through the title page of the Flight Manual, another supplement, or T.O. 0-1-1-5A,

CHANGES AND REVISIONS

Whenever you receive a normal change or revision to your checklist, check to ascertain that it reflects all outstanding supplements that affect the checklist. If it does not, add in the required information by hand. (Sometimes you will be able to accomplish this simply by retaining the appropriate change page which references the outstanding supplement.)

BINDERS

Binders containing plastic envelopes, to hold and protect the checklist pages, are available through normal AF supply channels. These binders are available in 15, 25, or 40 envelope sizes. The USAF Stock List numbers for these binders are 7510-766-4268, -4269, and -4270, respectively. Be sure to order enough binders - if you have a large checklist, you may want to carry it in two small binders instead of a single large one.
