Checkmate checklists make a dramatic difference with everyday use and also in critical situations. Checkmate is the only checklist that contains virtually all of the data desired by pilots, excluding the extraneous information that leads to inefficiency and confusion. Checkmate checklists eliminate the cluttered 15-page flip-book that pilots often use begrudgingly.
The top two-thirds of the front of the checklist include the actual checklist section, covering everything from INITIAL to SECURING. Below the checklist items, in the yellow section, are all of the V-speeds (not a partial listing). The V-speeds are in front of you at all times, not tucked away in a chart somewhere. Checkmate even added V-speeds for Va and Best Glide at lighter weights. This is important since these speeds are slower with less weight. All speeds are given in KNOTS and MPH. The bottom section shows proper configuration and data for DEPARTURE, CRUISE, and ARRIVAL, such as speeds, flaps, power settings and other special notes.
Emergency procedures with the subject headings highlighted in red are found on the back of the checklist. Next are light gun signals and common frequencies. The yellow box in the corner gives useful information such as loads, fuel type and capacity, oil, electrical, and tire information.
