Fit to fly - safety tips for returning to GA flying post COVID-19

3 June 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many aviators to take a pause until non-essential travel restrictions have been lifted.

As we move into the recovery journey it is important to stop and think carefully about the safety implications of a return to more ‘normal’ aviation operations. One way to make your return safer is by using one of the simplest but most effective tools in aviation — the checklist.

We have created a number of high-level lists you can use in addition to your aircraft and personal (I’M SAFE/PAVE) checklists. The Personal/Planning checklist should be done before you even arrive at the airfield. Doing the aircraft check a day early could save you a delay if anything pops up.
