Reduce aviation risk by creating checklists and conducting inspections with a digital safety checklist app
What are Aviation Checklists?
Aviation checklists are tools used by pilots and aircraft safety officers in identifying any potential risks before take-off to prevent flight incidents and fatalities.
Tips to Create a Good Aviation Checklist
- Define clear pause points: Pause points determine when a checklist should be used.
- Determine whether your checklist is a Do-confirm versus Read-do checklist.
- Keep a checklist between 5 and 9 items.
- Focus on the “killer items,” ones that are often overlooked.
- Wording should be simple and precise.
- Most importantly, test, test, test your checklist.
Use your ‘team intelligence’
Instead of focussing on hierarchy, the aviation industry put an emphasis on individual intelligence to foster team intelligence. Through the use of digital checklists, you can dramatically raise effectiveness and reduce errors. SafetyCulture iAuditor allows your team to log critical errors that you can analyze later to make improvements to your processes. Learn where your team is excelling and what needs improvement.

Create smart checklists
Pilots, cabin crew, and airports use multiple daily checklists. Ensure you are operating as efficiently as you can by eliminating the paper you use. A safety app has to be reliable, simple to use and data needs to be analyzed. SafetyCulture iAuditor allows users to build intelligent checklists that collect data faster and easier.
